You can configure global settings that affect the client sessions and connections that are managed by a Connection Server instance or replicated group. You can set the session timeout length, display prelogin and warning messages, and set security-related client connection options.
Set Options for Client Sessions and Connections You configure global settings to determine the way client sessions and connections work.
Change the Data Recovery Password You provide a data recovery password when you install Connection Server version 5.1 or later. After installation, you can change this password in View Administrator. The password is required when you restore the View LDAP configuration from a backup.
Global Settings for Client Sessions General global settings determine session timeout lengths, SSO enablement and timeout limits, status updates in Horizon Administrator, whether prelogin and warning messages are displayed, whether Horizon Administrator treats Windows Server as a supported operating system for remote desktops, and other settings.
Global Security Settings for Client Sessions and Connections Global security settings determine whether clients are reauthenticated after interruptions, message security mode is enabled, and IPSec is used for security server connections.
Message Security Mode for Horizon 7 Components You can set the message security mode to specify the security mechanism used when JMS messages pass among Horizon 7 components.
Configure the Secure Tunnel and PCoIP Secure Gateway When the secure tunnel is enabled, Horizon Client makes a second HTTPS connection to the View Connection Server or security server host when users connect to a remote desktop.
Configure the Blast Secure Gateway In Horizon Administrator, you can configure the use of the Blast Secure Gateway to provide secure access to remote desktops and applications, either through HTML Access or through client connections that use the VMware Blast display protocol.
Off-load TLS Connections to Intermediate Servers Horizon Client must use HTTPS to connect to Horizon 7. If your Horizon clients connect to load balancers or other intermediate servers that pass on the connections to Connection Server instances or security servers, you can off-load TLS to the intermediate servers.
Configure the Gateway Location for a Horizon Connection Server or Security Server Host By default, Horizon Connection Server instances set the gateway location to Internal and security servers set the gateway location to External. You can change the default gateway location by setting the gatewayLocation property in the locked.properties file.
