When you use Linux client to authenticate the broker with PIV card, which is supported by Linux desktop smartcard redirection, you must add view.sslProtocolString = "TLSv1.1" configuration for the Linux client at ~/.vmware/view-preferences to avoid SSL error.
Thanks, but as mentioned I'm running Windows 10 not Linux....there doesn't appear to be a view-preferences file anywhere in the VMWare directory...
My bad. You can try disabling TLS 1.2 by adding registry values for DisabledByDefault to 1 and Enabled to 0 here:
This isn't good practice (it lowers security for all of Windows) but may help isolate the problem. Ideally you shouldn't have to do this.
I have a Windows 10 VM I dedicate to work. I VPN to the work network and then use Horizon client to get a desktop. This was all working fine up until I had my CAC renewed a week ago. Even though I had all the intermediate and root CA certs loaded, I started getting the "An SSL error has occurred" message. Previously I was using the Windows built-in smart card support and it was fine, no issues with using my CAC for VPN or the Horizon client.
I tried upgrading the Horizon client, several registry entries... nothing helped. The VPN client continued to work fine with the new CAC.
My "fix" was to install ActivClient 7.1. I am not sure what it did, but it stopped that stupid error from popping up. I have seen the SSL error once since installing, but an immediate reconnect fixed it.
If you are a DoD contractor you might be able to get ActivClient for free. Look on militarycac.com for some links (I had access to AKO). If not, I think it's $35 to purchase a copy.
I hope this helps. It's a really frustrating and unhelpful error message.
Hate bringing up old thread, but.....
Error: SSL error Occurred.
If using active client, make sure you also have the latest patches.
My situation: AC 220.127.116.11 required patch 18.104.22.168 in order to work FIXS1509013.
