With internal and external Horizon View clients, do I *have* to have at least one Connection Server per connection type?

Jump to solution

If I want both external, non-VPN and internal LAN users to access View desktops, do I have to have a Connection Server dedicated to external users and a separate for internal? Right now I have a single Security Server-Connection Server pair and external connections work fine but internal connections do not. Do I have to stand up at least one Replica Connection Server and modify the HTTPS Secure Tunnel URL for internal users only?

Apparently, you don't need a dedicated Connection Server for internal users if you also have external users and a Security Server. I found this during my troubleshooting. The Security Server URLs will be configured in View Administrator as externally resolvable and reachable URLs while the Connection Server URLs will be configured with internally resolvable and reachable URLs in View Administrator.
