Networks Ports Diagramm for Horizon Workspace

without comments

Horizon Workspace comes as a vApp containing several virtual appliances which handle different jobs. The first rule for installing Horizon Workspace is: Get your DNS working! After that the configuration is quite easy. All setup for the vApp is done on the Configurator virtual appliance which propagates the settings to the other appliances. This information is sent via the SSH port which means that all appliances must be reachable from the Configurator via port 22. But what about the other services on the appliances? How do they communicate to each other? The following diagram gives you an overview of the open ports needed in your Horizon environment.

Please note that a few ports are configurable. This includes the connection to the database, the Active Directory, theView and SMTP server and last but not least the vCenter.

VMware View Network Port Table

without comments

Kudos to Matt Lesak who posted a link to the VMware View 5.0 Documentation Center. He pusblished a link on Twitter which forwards you to the TCP and UDP Ports needed for VMware View. As I get tons of requests about the networking ports I thought it might be a good idea to pusblish this link on the blog.

The article gives you an overview of all ports with Source, Target, Port number, protocol and a brief description.

Example:

Security server

4172

View Agent 4.5 or earlier

50002 (can be changed by group policy)

UDP

PCoIP (AES-128-GCM only) if PCoIP Secure Gateway is used.

Firewall settings for a VMware View environment

with 3 comments

When you have to configure your firewall policies for a VMware View environment it’s sometimes a little bit hard to find a simple overview of all the necessary ports and firewall settings.

To help you doing your job, I provide you here a comprehensive overview of all important communication flows of such an implementation.

This documents is a consolidated aggregation of the information you can find in the following documents:

HTTP and HTTPS-Traffic can be proxied on the application layer.

Every other protocol should only be proxied using a transparent TCP-/UDP-Proxy.
