Known Affected Versions:

Opened: Sep 14, 2018
Severity: 3-Major


When "HTTP(S) Secure Tunnel" option on Vmware View Connection Server is set to a FQDN that resolves to IPv6 only, secure tunnel connection from native View client fails.


Connection fails and Horizon client displays error "Could not establish tunnel connection".


- Configure APM as a proxy for VMware Horizon with "HTTP(S) Secure Tunnel" VCS option set to FQDN which resolves to only IPv6 address. - User tries to connect to a remote desktop or application with native Horizon client.


Instead of FQDN, configure 'Secure Tunnel" with IPv6 address.
