Configure Receiver with the Group Policy Object template

Jun 19, 2013

Citrix recommends using the Group Policy Object icaclient.adm template file to configure rules for network routing, proxy servers, trusted server configuration, user routing, remote user devices, and the user experience.

You can use the icaclient.adm template file with domain policies and local computer policies. For domain policies, import the template file using the Group Policy Management Console. This is especially useful for applying Receiver settings to a number of different user devices throughout the enterprise. To affect a single user device, import the template file using the local Group Policy Editor on the device.

  1. As an administrator, open the Group Policy Editor by either running gpedit.msc locally from the Start menu when applying policies to a single computer or by using the Group Policy Management Console when applying domain policies.
    Note: If you already imported the icaclient template into the Group Policy Editor, you can omit Steps 2 to 5.
  2. In the left pane of the Group Policy Editor, select the Administrative Templates folder.
  3. From the Action menu, choose Add/Remove Templates.
  4. Choose Add and browse to the Configuration folder for Receiver (usually C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\Configuration) and select icaclient.adm.
  5. Select Open to add the template and then Close to return to the Group Policy Editor.
  6. Under the User Configuration node or the Computer Configuration node, edit the relevant settings as required.
