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 XenApp or XenDesktop without SmartAccess, endpoint analysis, or network layer tunneling features.
- Connections with the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in and SmartAccess, which allows the use of SmartAccess, endpoint analysis, and network layer tunneling functions.
- Connections with Worx Home that establishes a Micro VPN connection from mobile devices to NetScaler 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.
