VMWare View on Microsoft IAG

VMWare View has been a bit of a pain to a number of people, but here what I have done in the past to get it to work.  (Thanks to Andrew Button for helping to remind me of some of these bits!!)

Let me be clear, I am not a VMWare expert in any fashion, and I have little knowledge of VMWare View!
  1. Ensure VMWare View works internally first
  2. Ensure a VMWare Security Server has been deployed (this tip was thanks to my  friend, Google)
  3. On IAG, publish a "Enchanced Generic Client App (hosts optional)"
  4. Give the application a name and the right access policy
  5. Give the server name that is hosting the VMWare View server, with the correct port (probably 443, if you are using HTTPS), iexplore as the executable, and the argument is the full URL for the service
  6. Finish the wizard
  7. Go into the properies and ensure that the Socket Forwarding Mode is set to VPN
  8. Publish and test
I have been struggling with making this SSO, but no joy.  If this changes, I will update this post!
