Citrix Gateway Enabled PCoIP Proxy Support for VMware Horizon View

Citrix Gateway 12.0 supports the PC-over-IP (PCoIP) protocol, which is the remote display protocol for several non-Citrix VDI solutions, including VMware Horizon View. PCoIP is analogous to Citrix HDX/ICA protocol and Microsoft RDP protocol. PCoIP uses UDP port 4172.

When PCoIP is proxied through Citrix Gateway, Citrix Gateway can replace the traditional PCoIP remote access solutions, like View Security Server, or VMware Access Point.

The following scenarios illustrate the use of Citrix Gateway enabled VMWare Horizon View Solution.

  • VMware Horizon PCoIP users needing to remotely access VMware Horizon View desktop pools and application pools through the Citrix Gateway without deploying a Horizon View Security Server or VMware Access Point.
  • PCoIP users remotely accessing other PCoIP-based virtual desktop solutions through Citrix Gateway.

Note

Citrix Gateway is deployed as a remote access solution.
