The Single Sign-on Plug-in runs on the XenApp server and provides credentials and access to published applications. The plug-in also runs on each user device, providing credentials, access to applications running locally on the device, and the ability to control Single Sign-on operations.
WinLogon uses the GINA controls for the dialog box that users see when they press the key combination CTRL+ALT+DEL. The dialog box collects the data needed to perform authentication. XenApp, the Single Sign-on Plug-in, and the Novell NetWare client interact with or require the replacement of the GINA dynamic link library (DLL). You might be required to install or uninstall software in a specific order to preserve proper GINA chaining. By installing the Single Sign-on Plug-in last, you ensure that the Single Sign-on GINA is called first by the Winlogon process.
Follow the procedures for downloading or delivering plug-ins in the Merchandising Server documentation.
When using this version of the Single Sign-on Plug-in for all XenApp sessions and on each user device, the Microsoft Windows notification area on each user device contains only one Receiver icon, with an integrated Single Sign-on menu that consolidates all sessions.

* Current = Receiver for Windows, which contains the Online Plug-in
** If the XenApp servers are running an earlier version of the Single Sign-on plug-in, and the current Receiver is installed on the user device (regardless of whether any Single Sign-on plug-in is installed on the user device), the Windows notification area on the user device will contain a Single Sign-on icon for each of those XenApp servers (running the earlier plug-in version) to which it is connected.
