VMware Horizon HTML5 client launch from APM Webtop results in certificate mismatch warning, as browser is redirected to IP address instead of host name due to use of "view.proxy_addr" session variable.


Certificate mismatch warning is shown.


VMware Horizon HTML5 client is used. "view.proxy_addr" session variable is set to external IP address.


Unset "view.proxy_addr" session variable, it's required only for PCoIP clients and HTML5 client uses Blast protocol.

Fix Information

"view.proxy_addr" session variable is now ignored for Blast protocol, which lets VMware Horizon HTML5 client to launch without warnings, even when this session variable is configured.
