Horizon 6 and Horizon 7 components exchange messages by using several different protocols.
Horizon 6 and Horizon 7 Components and Protocols Without a Security Server illustrates the protocols that each component uses for communication when a security server is not configured. That is, the secure tunnel for RDP, the Blast Secure Gateway, and the PCoIP Secure Gateway are not turned on. This configuration might be used in a typical LAN deployment.
See Default Ports for the default ports that are used for each protocol.
Horizon 6 and Horizon 7 Components and Protocols with a Security Server illustrates the protocols that each component uses for communication when a security server is configured. This configuration might be used in a typical WAN deployment.
Default Ports lists the default ports that are used by each protocol. If necessary, to comply with organization policies or to avoid contention, you can change which port numbers are used.
|TCP port 4001
TCP port 4002
|TCP port 8009
Note: AJP13 is used in a security server configuration only.
|TCP port 80
|TCP port 443
|For multimedia redirection and client drive redirection, TCP port 9427
|TCP port 3389
Note: If the Connection Server instance is configured for direct client connections, these protocols connect directly from the client to the remote desktop and are not tunneled through the View Secure GW Server component.
|TCP port 80 or 443
TCP port 4172
UDP ports 4172, 50002, 55000
|TCP port 32111. This port is also used for time zone synchronization.
|VMware Blast Extreme
TCP ports 8443, 22443
UDP ports 443, 8443, 22443
|TCP ports 8443, 22443
TCP Ports for Connection Server Intercommunication
Connection Server instances in a group use additional TCP ports to communicate with each other. For example, Connection Server instances use port 4100 or 4101 to transmit JMS inter-router (JMSIR) traffic to each other. Firewalls are generally not used between the Connection Server instances in a group.
