VMware Horizon

VMware Horizon is a VPN client that we use to connect to GSA’s intranet.

Setup

New employees should have a GSA VMware myView/Horizon account, but if not:

  1. Go to servicedesk.gsa.gov.
  2. Sign in with your ENT username and password.
  3. Click Submit Catalog Request.
  4. Click Accounts & Access Requests.
  5. Click Horizon (formerly myView) Access Request.
  6. Complete the required fields.
  7. Click Order Now.

Usage

  1. Once you have access, you can use myView through the web client or install the software from https://horizon.gsa.gov/.
  2. When using the installed software (VMWare Horizon Client), you will be prompted for “the name of the Connection Server”—enter horizon.gsa.gov.
  3. Enter a one time password.

Note: Horizon/myView allows for a virtual desktop in browser with no downloads.
