You can change the SSL/TLS configuration that the desktop and broker agents use to connect to the desktop and broker message servers by modifying the msgclient.properties file.

For desktop agents, you modify the msgclient.properties file on the desktop virtual machine or RDS server where View Agent is running. For a broker agent, you modify the msgclient.properties file on the View Connection server host where the broker agent is installed.

For the desktop agents, verify that you can connect to the remote desktop virtual machine or RDS host where View Agent is installed.

For a broker agent, verify that you can connect to the View Connection Server host where the broker agent is installed.

Become familiar with the SSL/TLS configuration properties. See SSL/TLS Configuration Properties.
