Access to StoreFront Through NetScaler Gateway

Feb 26, 2014

You can configure session policies to allow users to connect to StoreFront. Users can access published applications from XenApp and virtual desktops from XenDesktop through Citrix StoreFront.

You can configure the following session profiles that allow user access to StoreFront through NetScaler Gateway:

  • Citrix Receiver
  • Receiver for Web
  • PNA Services

When you configure the session profile for StoreFront, configure the virtual server for Basic mode. This allows users to access StoreFront through connections from one of the software types in the preceding list. When users connect, they use an ICA connection instead of the full VPN tunnel with the NetScaler Gateway Plugin.

When you configure the session profile, you select the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java instead of the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Windows or Mac OS X. When you select the Java plug-in, it restricts the connection to using the ICA protocol.

Note: Citrix recommends using the Quick Configuration wizard to configure these settings. When you run the wizard, NetScaler Gateway configures the session policies for StoreFront automatically with the correct settings.
