Citrix Receiver for Windows Enterprise delivers virtual desktops and apps to Windows PCs. Receiver for Windows Enterprise includes the following features:
To manage connections to virtual desktops and applications, configure XenApp Services URLs in Citrix StoreFront. Users access apps through the Windows Start menu. To provide web browser access to Storefront-published virtual desktops and apps, configure a Receiver for Web site.
To manage connections to virtual desktops and applications, use a legacy Citrix Web Interface site. Configure Receiver in the Web Interface Management Console using a Receiver site created in association with a site for the server running the Web Interface.
Receiver supports the XenApp feature set. Centrally administer and configure Receiver using Storefront or Web Interface.
You can use Receiver with the Citrix offline plug-in to provide application streaming to user desktops. For more information about the streamed application feature, see the Application Streaming documentation in eDocs.
The Desktop Viewer is not supported with XenApp connections.
Receiver includes the Desktop Viewer, the client-side software that supports XenDesktop. Users running the Desktop Viewer on their devices access virtual desktops created with XenDesktop in addition to their local desktop. Users running the Citrix Desktop Lock (which you install in addition to the Desktop Viewer) interact only with the virtual desktop not the local desktop.
The Citrix Connection Center displays all connections established from the Receiver.
The ICA Connections window displays a list of active sessions. Each server entry in the list represents a session. For each seamless session, below each server entry, a list of the published resources you are running on that server appears.
After you launch a published resource, you can access the Connection Center by right clicking the Receiver icon in your Windows notification area and choose Online Sessions > Connection Center. You can also access the Connection Center from the Preferences > Plug-in Status screen.
The Connection Center offers various options to view statistics and control sessions and applications:
