Citrix Gateway

Configuring Connection Types on the Virtual Server

When you create and configure a virtual server, you can configure the following connection options:

  • Connections with Citrix Receiver only to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops without SmartAccess, endpoint analysis, or network layer tunneling features.
  • Connections with the Citrix Gateway plug-in and SmartAccess, which allows the use of SmartAccess, endpoint analysis, and network layer tunneling functions.
  • Connections with Secure Hub that establishes a Micro VPN connection from mobile devices to Citrix Gateway.
  • Parallel connections made over the ICA session protocol by a user from multiple devices. The connections are migrated to a single session to prevent the use of multiple Universal licenses.

If you want users to log on without user software, you can configure a clientless access policy and bind it to the virtual server.
