Citrix Application Delivery Management service

Enable data collection for Citrix ADC Gateway appliances deployed in single-hop mode

When Citrix ADC Gateway is deployed in single-hop mode, the ADC Gateway is at the edge of the network and proxies ICA connections to the desktop delivery infrastructure. This deployment is the simplest and most common deployment. This mode provides security if an external user tries to access the internal network in an organization. In single-hop mode, users access the ADC appliances through a virtual private network (VPN).

To start collecting the reports, you must add the ADC Gateway appliance to the Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM) inventory and enable AppFlow on ADM. The following image illustrates a Citrix ADM deployed in single-hop mode
