Testing VMware Browser and SSO through Identity Bridging

Confirm that VMware Browser is already installed on your device and launch the app.

1. Confirm INTRANET shows up

Intranet Home Page

Previously you set http://intranet.corp.local as the home page for VMware Browser, and that is the page that you should be seeing now on your device.
