Integrating the NetScaler Gateway plug-in with Citrix Receiver

NetScaler Gateway supports Receiver. The orchestrated system consists of the following components:

  • Receiver for Windows 3.4 or newer
  • Receiver for Mac
  • Receiver for Android
  • Receiver for iOS
  • StoreFront 2.1 or newer
  • AppController 2.8 and newer or XenMobile 10
  • Citrix Update Service that is hosted on the Citrix Web site

For more information about NetScaler Gateway compatibility with Citrix products, see Compatibility with Citrix Products.

You can configure NetScaler Gateway so that when users log on to the appliance, the NetScaler Gateway plug-in opens a web browser that allows single sign-on to the Receiver home page. Users can download Receiver from the home page.

When users log on with Receiver, user connections can route through NetScaler Gateway in the following manner:

  • Directly to App Controller
  • Directly to StoreFront
  • To StoreFront and then App Controller if you do not configure MDX mobile apps in App Controller
  • To App Controller and then StoreFront if you do configure MDX mobile apps in App Controller

Note: Connections that are routed directly to App Controller are supported in AppController 2.0, AppController 2.5, AppController 2.6, App Controller 2.8, and App Controller 2.9 only. If you have AppController 1.1 deployed in your network, user connections must route through StoreFront.
