You use View Administrator to configure the external URLs for a View Connection Server instance.

Both the secure tunnel external URL and PCoIP external URL must be the addresses that client systems use to reach this View Connection Server instance. For example, do not specify the secure tunnel external URL for this instance and the PCoIP external URL for a paired security server.

Similarly, the secure tunnel external URL and Blast external URL must be the addresses that HTML connections use to reach this View Connection Server instance. For example, do not specify the secure tunnel external URL for this instance and the Blast external URL for a paired security server.

Verify that the secure tunnel connections and the PCoIP Secure Gateway are enabled on the View Connection Server instance. See Configure the PCoIP Secure Gateway and Secure Tunnel Connections.

To set the Blast external URL, verify that the Blast Secure Gateway is enabled on the View Connection Server instance. See Configure Secure HTML Access.

1

In View Administrator, click View Configuration > Servers.

2

Select the Connection Servers tab, select a View Connection Server instance, and click Edit.

3

Type the secure tunnel external URL in the External URL text box.

The URL must contain the protocol, client-resolvable host name and port number.

For example: https://myserver.example.com:443

Note

You can use the IP address if you have to access a View Connection Server instance when the host name is not resolvable. However, the host that you contact will not match the SSL certificate that is configured for the View Connection Server instance, resulting in blocked access or access with reduced security.

4

Type the PCoIP Secure Gateway external URL in the PCoIP External URL text box.

Specify the PCoIP External URL as an IP address with the port number 4172. Do not include a protocol name.

For example: 10.20.30.40:4172

The URL must contain the IP address and port number that a client system can use to reach this View Connection Server host. You can type into the text box only if a PCoIP Secure Gateway is installed on the View Connection Server instance.

5

Type the Blast Secure Gateway external URL in the Blast External URL text box.

The URL must contain the HTTPS protocol, client-resolvable host name, and port number.

For example: https://myserver.example.com:8443

By default, the URL includes the FQDN of the secure tunnel external URL and the default port number, 8443. The URL must contain the FQDN and port number that a client system can use to reach this View Connection Server host. You can type into the text box only if a Blast Secure Gateway is installed on the View Connection Server instance.
