Horizon Client for end users can involve configuring URIs to start Horizon Client, configuring the certificate verification mode, setting advanced TLS/SSL options, and using group policy ADMX template files to configure custom settings.
Common Configuration Settings Horizon Client provides several configuration mechanisms to simplify the login and desktop selection experience for end users, and enforce security policies.
Using URIs to Configure Horizon Client Using uniform resource identifiers (URIs), you can create a Web page or an email with links that end users click to start Horizon Client, connect to a server, and open a specific desktop or application with specific configuration options.
Setting the Certificate Checking Mode in Horizon Client You can determine whether client connections are rejected if any or some server certificate checks fail by configuring a setting in Horizon Client.
Configuring Advanced TLS/SSL Options You can select the security protocols and cryptographic algorithms that are used to encrypt communications between Horizon Client and servers, or between Horizon Client and the agent in the remote desktop.
Configure Published Application Reconnection Behavior Running published applications might remain open when Horizon Client disconnects from a server. You can configure how running published applications behave when Horizon Client reconnects to the server.
Using the Group Policy Template to Configure VMware Horizon Client for Windows Horizon Client includes a group policy ADMX template file that you can use to configure VMware Horizon Client. You can optimize and secure remote desktop connections by adding the policy settings in the ADMX template file to a new or existing GPO in Active Directory.
Running Horizon Client From the Command Line You can run Horizon Client for Windows from the command line or from scripts. You might want to do this if you are implementing a kiosk-based application that grants end users access to desktop applications.
Using the Windows Registry to Configure Horizon Client You can define default settings for the Horizon Client in the Windows Registry instead of specifying these settings on the command line. Group policy settings take precedence over Windows Registry settings, and Windows Registry settings take precedence over the command line..
