A while back I posted a blog post describing how to setup Kerberos single sign-on in Horizon Workspace 1.5, link: http://blogs.vmware.com/horizontech/2014/01/setting-up-kerberos-single-sign-in-sso-access-in-horizon-workspace-1-5.html. With the release of Horizon Workspace 1.8 we have changed the procedure and logic quite a bit.
This blog post will walk you through the process of setting up Kerberos SSO and hopefully explain some of the new concepts in Horizon Workspace 1.8 while doing so.
In Horizon Workspace 1.5 you configured the URL for View client access on your Connector. In Horizon Workspace version 1.8 that is all changed. To allow for greater flexibility you now specify the View URL on a per Network Range basis.
This allows you to more easily specify an internal URL for your internal clients and an external URL for your external users.
Last night Horizon Workspace 1.8 was released. While being a minor release it comes with some major new features and functionality.
Citrix-based Application (XenApp) integration
From the Horizon Workspace User Portal, users can now launch Citrix-based applications via XenApp 5.0, 6.0, and 6.5 using single sign-on. This feature requires Citrix Receiver to be installed on the client and supports Mac, PC, iOS and Android devices.
