The VMware Tunnel is a product you can install on physical or virtual servers that reside in either the DMZ or a secured internal network zone. VMware Tunnel comprises two separate components, proxy and Per-App Tunneling, each with their own features.

VMware Tunnel offers two architecture models for deployment: single-tier and multi-tier. Both configurations support load-balancing for high availability. The proxy component supports SSL offloading , while Per-App Tunneling cannot be SSL-offloaded .

Consider using the Per-App Tunnel component as it provides the most functionality with easier installation and maintenance. Per-App Tunnel uses the native platform (Apple, Google, Microsoft) APIs to provide a seamless experience for users. The Per-App Tunnel provides most of the same functionality of the Proxy component without the need for additional configuration that Proxy requires.

VMware Tunnel installs as a service on Unified Access Gateway on VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V. This deployment method simplifies configuration, installation, maintenance, and upgrades. After configuring VMware Tunnel in the UEM console, download and install the .ova file or .vhdx (hyper-v).
