Setting

Description

Use PCoIP Secure Gateway for PCoIP connections to machine

Determines whether Horizon Client makes a further secure connection to the Connection Server or security server host when users connect to Horizon 7 desktops and applications with the PCoIP display protocol.

If this setting is disabled, the desktop or application session is established directly between the client and the Horizon 7 desktop or the Remote Desktop Services (RDS) host, bypassing the Connection Server or security server host.

This setting is disabled by default.

Use Secure Tunnel connection to machine

Determines whether Horizon Client makes a further HTTPS connection to the Connection Server or security server host when users connect to an Horizon 7 desktop or an application.

If this setting is disabled, the desktop or application session is established directly between the client and the Horizon 7 desktop or the Remote Desktop Services (RDS) host, bypassing the Connection Server or security server host.

This setting is enabled by default.

Use Blast Secure Gateway for Blast connections to machine

Determines whether clients that use a Web browser or the Blast Extreme display protocol to access desktops use Blast Secure Gateway to establish a secure tunnel to Connection Server.

If not enabled, clients using a Blast Extreme session and Web browsers make direct connections to Horizon 7 desktops, bypassing Connection Server.

This setting is disabled by default.

For more information about these settings and their security implications, see the Horizon 7 Administration document.
