You use View Administrator to modify the external URLs for a security server.

You initially configure these external URLs when you install a security server in the View Connection Server installation program.

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

For secure access to View desktops over PCoIP, verify that the security server version is View 4.6 or later.

For secure HTML access to View desktops, verify that the security server version is View 5.2 or later.

Verify that the secure tunnel connections and the PCoIP Secure Gateway are enabled on the View Connection Server instance that is paired with this security server. 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 that is paired with this security server. See Configure Secure HTML Access.

1

In View Administrator, select View Configuration > Servers.

2

Select the Security Servers tab, select the security server, and click Edit.

The Edit button is unavailable if the security server is not upgraded to View Connection Server 4.6 or later.

3

Type the Secure Tunnel external URL in the External URL text box.

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

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

Note

You can use the IP address if you have to access a security server when the host name is not resolvable. However, the host that you contact will not match the SSL certificate that is configured for the security server, 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 security server. You can type into the text box only if a PCoIP Secure Gateway is installed on the security server.

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 security server. You can type into the text box only if a Blast Secure Gateway is installed on the security server.

6

Click OK to save your changes.

View Administrator sends the updated external URLs to the security server. You do not need to restart the security server service for the changes to take effect.
