Connect with Citrix Secure Web Gateway

This topic applies only to deployments using the Web Interface.

You can use the Citrix Secure Web Gateway in either Normal mode or Relay mode to provide a secure channel for communication between Citrix Workspace app for Windows and the server. No Citrix Workspace app configuration is required if you are using the Citrix Secure Web Gateway in Normal mode and users are connecting through the Web Interface.

Citrix Workspace app uses settings that are configured remotely on the server running the Web Interface to connect to servers running the Citrix Secure Web Gateway. See the topics for the Web Interface for information about configuring proxy server settings for Citrix Workspace app.

For more information about configuring proxy server settings, see Web Interface documentation.

If you are using Relay mode, the Citrix Secure Web Gateway server functions as a proxy and you must configure Workspace for Windows to use:

  • The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Citrix Secure Web Gateway server.
  • The port number of the Citrix Secure Web Gateway server.

The FQDN must list, in sequence, the following three components:

  • Host name
  • Intermediate domain
  • Top-level domain

For example: my_computer.my_company.com is an FQDN, because it lists, in sequence, a host name (my_computer), an intermediate domain (my_company), and a top-level domain (com). The combination of intermediate and top-level domain (my_company.com) is generally referred to as the domain name.
