application redirection with internet explorer

Hello,
I have a citrix farm and i have published applications (including I.E) ...Now , what i want to do is when the user connects to the citrix server using iCA client from his laptop and doubleclick on the I.E (on the Citrix server) i want via application redirection the IE on his laptop to start (thus i will protect the citrix from viruses , spyware and other goodies...)
i have presentation server XP 4.0 running on a windows 2003 box.
How can i do that?

Thanx.

This is done using a feature called Content Redirection from Server to Client.  Anytime a user clicks on a link that would be opened by a browser it will be sent down to the client's browser instead.  See the Admin Guide for how to do this:

http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX106319

Taken from page 263:

Follow the procedures below to enable Content Redirection from server to client.
To enable Content Redirection from server to client
Determine if you want Content Redirection from server to client to apply for the
entire server farm, for specific servers, or for specific users only.
• To apply the behavior to the entire server farm, select the farm in the console
and choose Properties from the Actions menu. Select MetaFrame Settings in
the left pane of the farm’s Properties page. Select the option Enable Content
Redirection from server to client.
• To apply the behavior to a specific server, select the server and choose
Properties from the Actions menu. Select MetaFrame Settings in the left pane
of the server’s Properties page. Select the option Enable Content Redirection
from server to client.
• To apply the behavior to specific connections, in a policy, enable the rule User
Workspace > Content Redirection > Content Redirection from Server to
Client. Assign the policy to only those connections for which you want to open
supported URL file types on client devices. For more information about
policies, see “Creating and Applying Policies” on page 289.

the point is that what if the client doesnt click on any link but he just clicks on the internet explorer it self...that will activate the I.E on the server right?  whereas what i want to do is to enamble the IE on the client...
does it help at all?

Why don't you just not publish IE then?  So they don't have the option of opening it from citrix....

cause i just wanted to show off to my boss.....but if you say so then i will go ahead and do that and i guess i wont publish the IE (on second thoughts though i wil lpublish the desktop so i will have to protect the IE with a GPO).
anyway, thanx mgcIT  the points are all yours..

cheers
