This document defines the requirements and considerations for establishing connectivity between the customer’s resources and Citrix Cloud Government.
Connecting to the Internet from your data centers requires opening port 443 to outbound connections. However, to operate within environments containing an Internet proxy server or firewall restrictions, further configuration might be needed.

Citrix Cloud Government management console
The Citrix Cloud Government management console is a web-based console that you can access after signing in to https://citrix.cloud.us. The web pages that make up the console might require other resources on the Internet, either when signing in or at a later point when carrying out specific operations.
If you’re connecting through a proxy server, the management console operates using the same configuration applied to your web browser. The console operates within the user context, so any configuration of proxy servers that require user authentication should work as expected.
For the management console to operate, you must have port 443 open for outbound connections. You can test general connectivity by navigating within the console.
Citrix Cloud Connector
The Citrix Cloud Connector is a software package that deploys a set of services that run on Microsoft Windows servers. The machine hosting the Cloud Connector resides within the network where the resources you use with Citrix Cloud Government reside. The Cloud Connector connects to Citrix Cloud Government, allowing it to operate and manage your resources as needed.
For requirements for installing the Cloud Connector, see Citrix Cloud Connector requirements. To operate, the Cloud Connector requires outbound connectivity on port 443. After installation, the Cloud Connector might have additional access requirements depending on the Citrix Cloud Government service with which it is being used.
