You can change the TLS configuration that the desktop and broker agents use to connect to the desktop and broker message servers by modifying the msgclient.properties file.

About this task

For desktop agents, you modify the msgclient.properties file on the desktop virtual machine or RDS server where Horizon Agent is running. For a broker agent, you modify the msgclient.properties file on the Horizon Connection server host where the broker agent is installed.

Prerequisites

  • For the desktop agents, verify that you can connect to the remote desktop virtual machine or RDS host where Horizon Agent is installed.

  • For a broker agent, verify that you can connect to the Horizon Connection Server host where the broker agent is installed.

  • Become familiar with the TLS configuration properties. See TLS Configuration Properties.
