To open the console on a remote server or cluster

By default, the License Administration Console is configured for access only from the machine on which it is installed. To enable remote access, disable the inbound Citrix Licensing Web Port rule. As a security best practice, Citrix recommends that you limit the access to administrative interfaces to a minimal set of hosts and do not access administrative web interfaces while browsing untrusted web sites.

Navigate your browser to one of the following URL options:

  • http://license server name:web service port
  • http://cluster name:web service port
  • http://IP:web service port


  • license server name is the name of your license server
  • cluster name is the name of a cluster containing the license server
  • IP is the IP address of the license server
  • web service port is the port number for the console's Web service

The default Web service port for the console is 8082.
