When using Citrix Receiver for Windows software, the following configuration steps allow users to access their hosted applications and desktops:
- Configure your application delivery and Configure your XenDesktop environment. Ensure your XenApp environment is configured correctly. Understand your options and provide meaningful application descriptions for your users.
- Configure self-service mode by adding a StoreFront account to Citrix Receiver for Windows. This mode allows users to subscribe to applications from the Citrix Receiver for Windows user interface.
- Configure with the Group Policy Object administrative template
- Provide users with account information. Provide users with the information they need to set up access to accounts hosting their virtual desktops and applications. In some environments, users must manually set up access to those accounts.
If you have users who connect from outside the internal network (for example, users who connect from the Internet or from remote locations), configure authentication through NetScaler Gateway. For more information, see Authentication and Authorization in NetScaler Gateway documentation.
