Preparing for your VMware Tunnel installation ensures a smooth installation process. Installation includes performing preliminary steps in the Workspace ONE UEM console, and setting up a server that meets the listed hardware, software, and network requirements.

Before deploying the VMware Tunnel, you must complete the following pre-deployment configurations:

  1. Before you begin installing VMware Tunnel, you have to ensure that the API and AWCM are installed correctly, running, and communicating with the Workspace ONE UEM without any errors. For more information, see Configure AWCM Server and Enable API Access.
  2. After completing AWCM Server configuration, you can configure VMware Tunnel settings per your deployment's configuration and functionality needs in the Workspace ONE UEM console. For more information, see Configure Per-App Tunnel and Configure VMware Tunnel Proxy Component.

  3. After you complete the VMware Tunnel configuration, you also must configure various settings to enable the VMware Web and Per-App Tunnel-enabled apps to use VMware Tunnel. Doing so ensures all HTTP(S) and TCP/ UDP traffic for the specified applications is routed through the VMware Tunnel. For more information, see VMware Tunnel Management.
  4. You can configure more settings that are optional for the VMware Tunnel deployment. Except where noted, you can configure these settings before or after installation. For more information, see Configure Advanced Settings for the VMware Tunnel Proxy.
