Setting up a Horizon 7 deployment for HTML Access involves installing the HTML Access component in Connection Server and allowing inbound traffic on certain TCP ports. To allow end users to use HTML Access to access published desktops and published applications, you must enable HTML Access in the farm settings. For virtual desktops, you must enable HTML Access in the desktop pool settings.

End users access their remote desktops and published applications by opening a supported browser and entering the URL for a server. When an end user connects to a server, the VMware Horizon Web portal page appears. You can configure the appearance of the VMware Horizon Web Portal page, and you can set group policies to control image quality, the ports used, and other settings.
