You can use Horizon Console to edit external URLs for Connection Server instances.
By default, a Connection Server host can be contacted only by tunnel clients that reside within the same network. Tunnel clients that run outside of your network must use a client-resolvable URL to connect to a Connection Server host.
When users connect to remote desktops with the PCoIP display protocol, Horizon Client can make a further connection to the PCoIP Secure Gateway on the Connection Server host. To use the PCoIP Secure Gateway, a client system must have access to an IP address that allows the client to reach the Connection Server host. You specify this IP address in the PCoIP external URL.
A third URL allows users to make secure connections through the Blast Secure Gateway.
The secure tunnel external URL, PCoIP external URL, and Blast external URL must be the addresses that client systems use to reach this host.
- In Horizon Console, select .
- On the Connection Servers tab, select the Connection Server instance and click Edit.
- Type the secure tunnel external URL in the External URL text box.
The URL must contain the protocol, client-resolvable host name and port number.For example: https://horizon.example.com:443Note: You can use the IP address if you have to access a Connection Server instance when the host name is not resolvable. However, the host that you contact will not match the TLS certificate that is configured for the Connection Server instance, resulting in blocked access or access with reduced security.
- Type the PCoIP Secure Gateway external URL in the PCoIP External URL text box.
Specify the PCoIP external URL as an IP address with the port number 4172. Do not include a protocol name.For example: 10.20.30.40:4172The URL must contain the IP address and port number that a client system can use to reach this Connection Server instance.
- Type the Blast Secure Gateway external URL in the Blast External URL text box.
The URL must contain the HTTPS protocol, client-resolvable host name, and port number.For example: https://myserver.example.com:8443By default, the URL includes the FQDN of the secure tunnel external URL and the default port number, 8443. The URL must contain the FQDN and port number that a client system can use to reach this host.
- Verify that all addresses in this dialog allow client systems to reach this host.
- Click OK to save your changes.
The external URLs are updated immediately. You do not need to restart the Connection Server for the changes to take effect.
