Accessing Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Resources with the Web Interface

One or more computers running Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops creates a server farm. If your enterprise network contains a server farm, you can deploy Citrix Gateway to provide secure Internet access to published applications or virtual desktops by using the Web Interface.

In such deployments, Citrix Gateway works with the Web Interface and the Secure Ticket Authority (STA) to provide authentication, authorization, and redirection to published applications hosted on a computer running Citrix Virtual Apps or to virtual desktops provided by Citrix Virtual Desktops.

This functionality is achieved by integrating Citrix Gateway with the Web Interface, Citrix Virtual Apps, and Desktops. This integration provides advanced authentication and an access control option to the Web Interface. For more information about the Web Interface, see the Web Interface documentation in the Citrix documentation library.

Remote connectivity to a server farm does not require the Citrix Gateway plug-in. To access published applications or desktops, users connect by using Citrix Receiver.
