  • Hey eran 

    I think i might be able to reach out to someone in the backend engineering on this one, but wanted to clarify a couple of questions

    1) you mention that the webtop version works correctly, i would assume you also followed the doc you listed that modified the Webtop configuration to allow it to work?  (adding duo script to the and the however nothing was added to the file).

    2) I assume the Macro is the same macro used in the browser and horizon client but the horizon client fails. 

    I have a feeling i know whats going on, but just those bits of clarity will help me ask the backend engineers..

      Hey matt

      sorry for the (very..) late reply.

      We are in the process of changing the 2FA to OAuth with Duo. Everything works fine through Webtop.

      However, when we tried to see how it works directly through the VMware Horizon client, we are "stuck" at the connecting stage and are not being redirected or prompted for a Duo challenge.

      My only question is: Is it even possible to prompt a Duo challenge when connecting directly?

      I have followed this article
