Attempts by View clients to connect to View servers over HTTP are silently redirected to HTTPS. In some deployments, you might want to prevent users from entering http:// in their Web browsers and force them to use HTTPS. To prevent HTTP redirection for View clients, you must configure the locked.properties file on the View server

Note

This procedure has no effect if you off-load SSL to an intermediate device. With SSL off-loading in place, the HTTP port on the View server provides service to clients.

1

Create or edit the locked.properties file in the SSL gateway configuration folder on the View Connection Server or security server computer.

For example: install_directory\VMware\VMware View\Server\sslgateway\conf\locked.properties

The properties in the locked.properties file are case sensitive.

2

Add the following lines to the locked.properties file:

frontMappingHttpDisabled.1=5:*:missing
frontMappingHttpDisabled.2=3:/error/*:file:docroot
3

Restart the View Connection Server service or security server service to make your changes take effect.
