Creating the Session Profile for Receiver or Worx Home for StoreFront

When you configure session policies and profiles for Receiver or Worx Home to connect to StoreFront, you configure expressions within the session policies. The User-Agent header must always start with CitrixReceiver. Receiver versions that recognize StoreFront services protocols must also include a header called X-Citrix-Gateway when accessing StoreFront service interfaces. In this scenario, App Controller is not part of the deployment. When you configure the settings, you select the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java, instead of the plug-in for Windows or Mac. This allows user connections by default to Receiver.

Note: Citrix recommends configuring these settings by using the Quick Configuration wizard. For more information, see Configuring Settings with the Quick Configuration Wizard.

You need to configure the StoreFront web address as the home page on the Client Experience tab and as the Web Interface address on the Published Applications tab.
