VMware View 4 External Connection


I have been working on this for a few weeks now, finally getting to the last of the project.

I am trying to connect to my View server externally through the View Client on my PC.

With my pc on the inside network, i can access all the desktops without a problem, but when im external, i can authenticate to the view server and pull a list of available machines, but when i try to connect, it looks like its going to connect, but only displays a small box at the top left of my screen, then after a few seconds it disappears.

I have ports 443, 4001, and 50002 opened on the firewall for this particular server. My firewall company says that the traffic is not being flagged in or out.

Does ANYONE have any ideas or has someone ran into this in the past??

ANY help I can get will be appreciated!!

The ports you have opened, is it both TCP and UDP enabled?

Are you also accessing the View Server externally though a different URL / FQDN? If so you need to ensure that you set the External
In View Admin, Click on configuration -> Servers -> View Servers -> Edit  View Server Settings and Add the External URL as necessary.
I also of course assume you have no security servers configured but if you did, you would do the similar thing for your security server..
