Setting Up a Web Interface Site

If you deploy the Web Interface in the secure network and configure authentication on Citrix Gateway, when users connect to Citrix Gateway, the appliance authenticates users.

Important: Install and configure the Web Interface before you configure Citrix Gateway. For more information, see the Web Interface documentation in the Technologies node in the Citrix eDocs library.

The steps for creating a Web Interface site include:

  • Select how users log on. This can be through a web browser, the Citrix Gateway Plug-in, or Citrix Receiver. For information, see Web Interface Features.
  • Identify where users authenticate from. Citrix Gateway or the Web Interface.

Note: When the Web Interface is in the secure network, you enable authentication on the virtual server on the Citrix Gateway. When you disable authentication, unauthenticated HTTP requests are sent directly to the server running the Web Interface. Disabling authentication on Citrix Gateway is recommended only when the Web Interface is in the DMZ and users connect directly to the Web Interface.

Make sure you install a valid server certificate on Citrix Gateway. For more information about working with certificates, see Installing and Managing Certificates.

Important: For the Web Interface to work properly with Citrix Gateway 10.1, the server running the Web Interface must trust the Citrix Gateway certificate and be able to resolve the virtual server fully qualified domain name (FQDN) to the correct IP address.
