You’ve successfully deployed a new VMware View 5.0 Security Server in your DMZ and published it for remote users to access but connecting to it through the internet displays a black screen for a few seconds:
… and the session terminates with the message:
VMware View Client
The connection to the remote computer ended.
I’ve experienced this behavior in the following 2 cases:
The PCoIP ports between your Security Server which sits in the DMZ and your internal trusted network where the Connection Server and View Desktops are or the internet where the remote users are connecting from. Ensure that you have the PCoIP ports opened between the DMZ and internal trusted network and the DMZ and the internet. See the following KB for more information about the ports that are required to be opened:

Depending on your topology (i.e. there is only 1 View Connection server), you may need to check the Use PCoIP Secure Gateway for PCoIP connections to desktop:
