VMware Horizon View and AT&T
I saw a few specific posts (regarding a certain model of hotspot), and posted in that thread, but then thought this should be a new topic not tied to a specific hotspot.
This is STILL an ongoing issue with AT&T wireless and connecting to VMware Horizon View services (NOT the initial connection to the server).
This is affecting me, in the greater Seattle area. It would be good to know if this is a regional firewall issue or a national one.
My employer uses VMware Horizon View for remote access to VM workstations and services.
I can connect to the Horizon View server, but as soon as I try to connect to a service or a VM desktop it always fails.
This IS AT&T blocking the tunnel/proxy/port(s). I have tried with both VMBlast and PCoIP protocols, and the same issue occurs if I try to use a web browser and the html5 option.
If I use a Verizon hotspot or my work phone on Verizon (Android Client for Horizon), I have no issues.
If I am using a Frontier DSL connection, I have no issues.
This is AT&T blocking the VM workstation/service tunnel/proxy/port(s). Either by a direct firewall deny policy or by not allowing the needed services/ports/applications in the firewalls that Horizon View requires. Funny how VMware and AT&T Business are supposed to be helping customers and businesses work, and then this happens.
This affects many people at work as well as vendors who use AT&T hotspots to connect to our resources.
I would be more than happy to work with a Network Engineer to resolve this issue.
I am hoping this will get escalated and I am contacted to work on the issue.
