Troubleshooting a black screen when logging into a Horizon View virtual desktop using web browser

I've setup VM Horizon View HTML Access before finished my VM View Project last few weeks ago.

After that, I've tested and found out the error that is I can see only Black Screen after I login sucessful to View Access Login.

But I've notice Windows is Active if I view from View Administrator and vSphere Console.

I've checked throughly Security Server, Connection Server and Pool that all required Ports, Firewall Rules are enabled according to VMware and just confirm all requirements are deployed.

Finally I've checked IPS in my network and found out two Traffice Normilazation Filters (TCP: Segment Overlap With Different Data & TCP Keep-Alive Message With 1 Garbage Octet)are need to enable for above error.

Once I've enabled to allow this two filter, I could see the Windows sucessfully by using Web Browser. Great!

Allow me explain more details about these two filters for your further understanding.

You need to allow TCP: Segment Overlap With Different Data & TCP Keep-Alive Message With 1 Garbage Octet on Outbound connection from Connection Server but not for other connection and other server.

Otherwise, you will face other attack in your network.

I've allow on IPS only because all my firewall are not enabled the IPS function.

So, if you do not have IPS in your network, just forecast in your Firewalls.

TCP: Segment Overlap With Different Data Filter is to see the Windows Login Screen and TCP Keep-Alive Message With 1 Garbage Octet is to see Windows Desktop after login to Windows.

That's why you need to allow these two filters.

OK. I hope you all understand now why Black Screen is come out when you access your Virtual Desktop by using Web Access.

May you all be happy.
(Be knowledgeable, pass it on then)

Fortigate guide for Begineer - 6

I would like to explaine how to troubleshoot the Fortigate Unit configured by Transparent Mode in step by step this time. Let's assume, you have one Fortigate Unit that configured as Transparent Mode. But devices from Internal/Private Network unable to access Internet/Public Network through your Fortigate Unit. OK. Let's troubleshoot with following steps, 1) Check the physical network connections between the network and the FortiGate unit, and between the FortiGate unit and the Internet. 2) Check the router and ISP-supplied equipment to make sure it is operating correctly. 3) Verify that you can connect to the internal interface by connecting to the management IP address of the FortiGate unit from the Internal network. From the internal network, attempt to ping the management IP address. If you cannot connect to the internal interface, verify the IP configuration of the PC and make sure the cables are connected and all switches and other devices on the network are powered on a
