Citrix Gateway

Starting Citrix Workspace app

Starting Citrix Workspace app is the third stage of the user connection process in a double-hop DMZ deployment. The basic process is as follows:

  1. The user clicks a link to a published application in the Web Interface. The Web Interface sends the ICA file for that published application to the browser for the user device.

    The ICA file contains data instructing the web browser to start Receiver.

    The ICA file also contains the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or the Domain Name System (DNS) name of the Citrix Gateway in the first DMZ.

  2. The web browser starts Receiver and the user connects to Citrix Gateway in the first DMZ by using the Citrix Gateway name in the ICA file. Initial SSL/TLS handshaking occurs to establish the identity of the server running Citrix Gateway.
