Preparing VMware Tunnel and Reverse Proxy INI Settings for Deployment

This section will cover the required INI settings to configure VMware Tunnel Service and Web Reverse Proxy during the Unified Access Gateway appliance deployment.

1. Configuring the General deployment settings

A INI file containing all the configuration settings required to deploy the Unified Access Gateway Appliance.

In this exercise you will use the uag-Cert-to-Kerberos file and fill out the respective parameters for your deployment.

You will be deploying a new Unified Access Gateway Appliance called UAG-CERT, that has two NICs where NIC one is set to internet facing and NIC two for Backend and management.

2. Open the UAG-Cert-to-Kerberos File for Editing

Editing UAG-2NIC.ini
  1. Click the File Explorer icon from the task bar.
  2. Click Desktop.
  3. Click UAG Resources.

4. Configuring VMWare Tunnel Settings

AirWatch settings

Right below General Section, you will find the AirWatch section, which contain the required parameters to enable VMware Tunnel Edge Service on your Unified Access Gateway Appliance.
