Integrating the Citrix Gateway plug-in with Citrix Receiver

Citrix Gateway supports Receiver. The orchestrated system consists of the following components:

  • Receiver for Windows 3.4 or newer
  • Receiver for Mac
  • Receiver for Android
  • Receiver for iOS
  • StoreFront 2.1 or newer
  • AppController 2.8 and newer or Citrix Endpoint Management 10
  • Citrix Update Service that is hosted on the Citrix Web site

For more information about Citrix Gateway compatibility with Citrix products, see Compatibility with Citrix Products.

You can configure Citrix Gateway so that when users log on to the appliance, the Citrix Gateway plug-in opens a web browser that allows single sign-on to the Receiver home page. Users can download Receiver from the home page.

When users log on with Receiver, user connections can route through Citrix Gateway in the following manner:

  • Directly to Endpoint Management
  • Directly to StoreFront
  • To StoreFront and then Endpoint Management if you do not configure MDX mobile apps in Endpoint Management
  • To Endpoint Management and then StoreFront if you do configure MDX mobile apps in Endpoint Management

Note: Connections that are routed directly to Endpoint Management are supported in AppController 2.0, AppController 2.5, AppController 2.6, App Controller 2.8, and App Controller 2.9 only. If you have AppController 1.1 deployed in your network, user connections must route through StoreFront.
