You configure global settings to determine the way client sessions and connections work.

The global settings are not specific to a single View Connection Server instance. They affect all client sessions that are managed by a standalone View Connection Server instance or a group of replicated instances.

You can also configure View Connection Server instances to use direct, nontunneled connections between View clients and View desktops. See Configure the Secure Tunnel Connection and PCoIP Secure Gateway for information about configuring direct connections.

Familiarize yourself with the global settings. See Global Settings for Client Sessions and Connections.


In View Administrator, click View Configuration > Global Settings.


Click Edit.


Configure the global settings.


Click OK.

If you change the Require SSL for client connections and View Administrator setting, you must restart the View Connection Server service to make your changes take effect. In a group of replicated View Connection Server instances, you must restart the View Connection Server service on all instances in the group. You do not have to restart the Windows Server computer where View Connection Server is installed.
