Starting Citrix Receiver

Starting Citrix Receiver is the third stage of the user connection process in a double-hop DMZ deployment. The basic process is as follows:

  1. The user clicks a link to a published application in the Web Interface. The Web Interface sends the ICA file for that published application to the browser for the user device.

    The ICA file contains data instructing the web browser to start Receiver.

    The ICA file also contains the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or the Domain Name System (DNS) name of the NetScaler Gateway in the first DMZ.

  2. The web browser starts Receiver and the user connects to NetScaler Gateway in the first DMZ by using the NetScaler Gateway name in the ICA file. Initial SSL/TLS handshaking occurs to establish the identity of the server running NetScaler Gateway.
