Hi guys,

Hope you can help - any Citrix Gurus out there?

Ive just installed Metaframe.
When I go to launch the web interface, or even http://localhost, it displays Service Unavailabe.
Any ideas?

Thank you

    Maybe a stupid question, but is the IIS running at all? Check with the IIS management console or directly in Computer Management\Services whether the w3svc service is running and the startup type is set to automatic.

    Figured it out.
    It was the Internet Security Enhanced Configuration - I had uninstalled this, which caused the problem.
