VMware Horizon Blast transport is not supported for IPv6 targets (remote desktops/apps) by APM.


Connection to remote desktop/app cannot be established via APM.


VMware Horizon Blast transport target (remote desktop/app) is configured with IPv6 address.


1. Disable 'HTTP(S) Secure Tunnel' setting on Connection Server. Alternately, it can be configured with IPv6 address, instead of FQDN. 2. Set pae-PreferDNS setting to 1 for Connection Server to prefer DNS names, as described here: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon-7/7.1/com.vmware.horizon-view.installation.doc/GUID-8E7FBB9D-F2DB-4787-B11B-7506126DEB7F.html 3. Apply following iRule to APM VS: when HTTP_REQUEST { if { [info exists tmm_apm_view_desktop_host_port] } { set tmm_apm_view_blast_host_port $tmm_apm_view_desktop_host_port unset tmm_apm_view_desktop_host_port } if { [info exists tmm_apm_view_blast_host_port] } { if { [regexp {^([\da-f.:%]+):(\d+)$} $tmm_apm_view_blast_host_port -> dst_host dst_port] } { unset tmm_apm_view_blast_host_port node $dst_host $dst_port } } }
