VMware Horizon View Network Ports Illustrated pt. 2

08/12/2013 Comments off

As Carl pointed out, I left HTML Access (aka Blast) off of the first round of View network port diagrams.  So after going through the documents and making various connections while running TCPView, here’s the updated diagrams including the networks ports used by HTML Access and the Blast Secure Gateway.

Here’s the PDF

VMware Horizon View Network Ports Illustrated

I’ve recently had to attempt to describe the ports used in the various connection scenarios used by VMware View and found that a diagram really helped clear things up and have aided in producing accurate firewall rules.

A couple notes about the connections depicted though;

  • I only included v5.x. Previous versions behave differently, so use caution if you reference these in an environment where v4.x components are reused.
  • I did not depict the connection from the vCenter Server to hosts, LDAP etc. These diagrams are View-centric
  • Although the View client may connect to the View Connection Server over HTTP/TCP80, I did not depict it because we strongly prefer the HTTPS, encrypted connection.
  • Wyse MMR is not included since it is not supported on Windows 7 Virtual Desktops
  • Black arrows indicate TCP connection request and direction
  • Green arrows represent UDP traffic flow
