Problem

You’ve noticed that the following error is thrown when you attempt to connect to a VMware Horizon View virtual desktop through the security server with the VMware Horizon Client:

The following information is logged in the events:

Then display the following error:

An error has occurred: {"code":"ETIMEDOUT","errno":"ETIMEDOUT","syscall":"connect","address":"10.34.30.60","port":22443}

Solution

One of the reasons why these errors would be thrown is if the following ports are not opened between the Security servers to the virtual desktops:

  • TCP/UDP 4172
  • TCP 22443
  • TCP 32111
  • UDP 22443
  • TCP 9427

Verify the ports above and all other ports identified in the following KB:
