You use View Administrator to configure the use of the secure tunnel and PCoIP Secure Gateway. These components ensure that only authenticated users can communicate with remote desktops and applications.

About this task

Clients that use the PCoIP display protocol can use the PCoIP Secure Gateway. Clients that use the RDP display protocol can use the secure tunnel.

For information about configuring the Blast Secure Gateway, see Configure the Blast Secure Gateway.

Important:

A typical network configuration that provides secure connections for external clients includes a security server. To enable or disable the secure tunnel and PCoIP Secure Gateway on a security server, you must edit the View Connection Server instance that is paired with the security server.

In a network configuration in which external clients connect directly to a View Connection Server host, you enable or disable the secure tunnel and PCoIP Secure Gateway by editing that View Connection Server instance in View Administrator.

Prerequisites

  • If you intend to enable the PCoIP Secure Gateway, verify that the View Connection Server instance and paired security server are View 4.6 or later.

  • If you pair a security server to a View Connection Server instance on which you already enabled the PCoIP Secure Gateway, verify that the security server is View 4.6 or later.
