Did we forget to do some settings or is there an other workaround to work with PCoIP over the WAN?
This is a common problem and others who experience this fix it by carefully following the three steps here http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-14974
If any of the steps are missed, then with PCoIP over the WAN you'll just get a black screen for a few seconds and the connection will drop.
Thank you for the response...
is it possible to setup the connection wihtout a security server or is it essential to have a security server?
Thank you Mark for your response. Know I've installed a security-server in the dmz. Does I publish the Security-Server for connecting to the view-Infrastructure from WAN?
Go through the video linked from the above article. It describes exactly the setup you are working on. If you then have any questions about this, let us know and someone on this forum will help you out.
got still some issues with PCoIP over WAN. My Lab looks like this:
194.209.x.y is the WAN-IP for view.company.ch
194.209.x.y is NAT to 10.0.2.60 (all Ports i.e. 443, 4172 (TCP, UDP) are opened)
10.0.2.60 is the IP from the VMware View Securityserver.
10.0.2.3 is the IP from the TMG-Server (outside interface).
192.168.199.2 is the IP from the TMG-Server (inside interface).
192.168.199.60 is the IP from the VMware View Connectionserver.
On the TMG-Server I got a firewallpolicy that enables the connection from 10.0.2.0/24 to 192.168.199.0/24 (all outgoing Ports). A Ping from View Securityserver to View Connectionserver is ok.
If I connect from WAN to view.company.ch over View Client through RDP everything is working fine.
If i connect from WAN to view.company.ch over View Client through PCoIP I got a blackscreen.
I don't know wheres the issue - all firewalls are correct configured - I think so.
Is it possible theres a configurationfailure at the 'PCoIP External URL' or the 'PCoIP Secure Gateway' Setting?
thank you a lot for the blogentry and the fantastic video....got found the issue....it was the dns entry on the view security server.
I'm glad it was simple and you got it up and running. Thanks for posting back what it was. It helps others.
