vSphere remote acess

Hi everyone I am currently running my test environment on Esxi 5.5 update 1 and vCenter version 5.5 update 1b, I was wondering how i can let the users connected to the view desktops if they are outside the my domain. I have setup the remote access so that they can go to the connection server URL to get connected to the pools but I want this to work if they are outside the domain. My question is do i need to setup a web server to host the External URL or Is there is way in vCenter or  in  View to host these URL.

Thanks

Suggestions please

Hi

Are you having a Horizon View/VMware View and would like to let the users to get desktops outside of domain - from Internet?
If yes, you can setup a View Security Server: VMware View 5.2 Documentation Library - Install View Security Server

You can setup the View Security Server paired to your existing View Connection Server and put the Security Server on DMZ so users can access from the Internet.

Below are some references on how to setup a View Security Server
