NetScaler Gateway Enabled PCoIP Proxy Support for VMware Horizon View

NetScaler 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 NetScaler Gateway, NetScaler Gateway can replace the traditional PCoIP remote access solutions, like View Security Server, or VMware Access Point.

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

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

Note

NetScaler Gateway is deployed as a remote access solution.
