VM takes long time to log into Horizon View


I recently got Horizon View working in my new lab. But, it takes 5 or 6 minutes to get a desktop when logging in inside my lab.  And logging in outside fails due to the amount of time it takes to get a desktop.

I asked a friend about this and it turns out to be a configuration issue.  Which means I thought other people could hit it so I need to share it out quick.

So here is what you need to do if you have this problem.

  • Log into the admin console, and go to Settings -> Servers -> Connection Servers
  • Now select your connection server and select Edit.
  • Scroll down and uncheck the HTTPS Secure Tunnel box.
  • Scroll down and uncheck the PCoIP Gateway box.
  • Scroll further down and use the middle option in Blast Secure Gateway which is Use Blast Secure Gateway only for HTML access.
  • Now click OK.

Now you need to test.  Which I did I got a desktop  in a minute or two, and I get out outside my lab.

I hope that this helps, and I will look at it more in the future to see what else I can learn and update this article.

Let me know if you have questions or comments.
