Administrators must perform specific tasks to enable end users to connect to remote desktops and applications.

Before end users can connect to Connection Server or a security server and access a remote desktop or application, you must configure certain pool settings and security settings:

  • If you plan to use Access Point, configure Connection Server to work with Access Point. See Deploying and Configuring Access Point. Access Point appliances fulfill the same role that was previously played by only security servers.

  • If you are using a security server, verify that you are using the latest maintenance releases of Connection Server 5.3.x and Security Server 5.3.x or later releases. For more information, see the View Installation document.

  • Verify that a desktop or application pool has been created and that the user account that you plan to use is entitled to access the pool.

    For more information, see the topics about creating desktop and application pools in the Setting Up Desktop and Application Pools in View document.

  • To use two-factor authentication with Horizon Client, such as RSA SecurID or RADIUS authentication, you must enable this feature on Connection Server. For more information, see the topics about two-factor authentication in the View Administration document.
