ASA 8.3 and smart tunnel vsphere client

Hi all,

i`ve setup smart tunnel with different applications. (mstsc.exe, putty.exe). This works fine. I`ve now tried to add the vSphere client appliaction (VpxClient.exe). But i don`t get it working.

My question now: Has somebody get it working or is this a vmware problem?

Re: ASA 8.3 and smart tunnel vsphere client


I attempted a Smart Tunnel for the VMware View-4 Client (PCOIP) and discovered that it uses both TCP and UDP - so it was not going to work since Smart Tunnels only work for Winsock 2 TCP based app's.   I am not certain but you may be running into the same issue.

Best regards,

you can force the VMware View client to use RDP protocol and not PCoIP.

but i'm checking with Cisco as there is a VMware document floating about that is stating that the ASA SSL VPN can be setup using Smart Tunnel to support remote users.  

Hoping we can get back to PCoIP and not stuck with RDP.
