To configure whether SSL is used for communications and data transfers between client computers that host local desktops and View Transfer Server, you set View Connection Server settings in View Administrator.

The SSL settings for View Transfer Server communications and data transfers are specific to a single View Connection Server instance. You might want to enable SSL on an instance that services users that connect from the Internet, but disable it on an instance that is dedicated to internal users.

SSL is disabled by default for View Transfer Server communications and data transfers.

Note

These SSL settings do not affect local data, which is always encrypted.

In View Administrator, select View Configuration > Servers.

2

Select the View Connection Server instance and click Edit.

To configure SSL for communications and data transfers between client computers that host local desktops and View Transfer Server, select or deselect Use SSL for Local Mode operations.
