Creating a Web Interface Site

Apr 29, 2013

To configure the Web Interface to work with file type association, you first create the Web Interface site. The Web Interface site can be in Direct or Advanced Access Control. Copy the following directories to your Web Interface site:

  • app_data
  • auth
  • site

When you copy these directories to the Web Interface site, the existing directories are overwritten.

If you are using Web Interface 4.6 or 5.0, open the web.config file in the Web Interface site directory and add the following code. You can download this code from the Citrix Support site at http://support.citrix.com/article/ctx116253.

<location path="site/contentLaunch.ica"> 
<system.web> 
<httpHandlers> 
<add verb="*" path="*.ica" type="System.Web.UI.PageHandlerFactory"/> 
</httpHandlers> 
</system.web> 
</location> 
<location path="site/contentLaunch.rad"> 
<system.web> 
<httpHandlers> 
<add verb="*" path="*.rad" type="System.Web.UI.PageHandlerFactory"/> 
</httpHandlers> 
</system.web> 
</location>

This code must be added after the following section in the web.config file:

<location path="site/launch.rad"> 
        <system.web> 
            <httpHandlers> 
                <add verb="*" path="*.rad" type="System.Web.UI.PageHandlerFactory"/> 
            </httpHandlers> 
        </system.web> 
    </location>
