Multiple Windows and Applications in Citrix

This is a follow up to "Is Citrix an Appropriate Solution?"

Okay, I started playing with it a little at work today.  First problem: I can't open multiple Internet Explorer sessions.  Is there a way to make this happen?

In pulling together resources to solve a problem for a customer, as well as to be able to multitask, I have to have multiple browsers going.  For instance, right now (on my NORMAL client), I have 5 IE windows going.   I've also got 4 Adobe Acrobat Readers up, 2 Word documents, 3 folder Explore windows going, along with several esoteric applications and a few spreadsheets.

    Instead of connecting to a single published app (such as IE in your case), you should be connecting to a full desktop.  Then you're able to open as many instances of whatever app is installed on the Citrix server (and that you have the proper permissions to use).

    Regarding multiple instances of a browser, you might enjoy Mozilla Firefox's tabbed browsing feature.

    I agree with above publish a desktop using the CMC (citrix management console) and you wil be able to open as many as you like.

    Also has the app been setup with a one instance per user setting because you should be able to open as many instances of the app as you like.

    Right click the app in CMC select properties and then application limits you will see on the right a check box make sure it is clear

    If you go onto Citrix management console log in.

    Right click on the IE application being published.. You will find this in the applications folder tree on the left hand side.

    Select properties.

    Then select application limits configure to suite your needs.

    Full desktop is an option but with other overheads to be considered

    hope this helps

    Thanks all.  I'm going to meet with the poor guy from IT who's going to set up the work station.  I'll pose your questions to him and see what's possible.   Once he gets back, I'll close this question.

    My apologies to all.  We still haven't got things set up.  Our IT person came by to assess which applications I use and what I would need to do tech support, and I haven't heard from him since.  Since they're still using version 2, there are a LOT of problems. I think they've decided to put out fires first.  

    Thanks for the great info.
