It's basically a client application that allows you to connect to a Server with a Citrix published application/ desktop.

You would deploy this if you want all users to have the same desktop settings or are running a thin (dummy terminal)/ fat (server) network environment; they connect to published application, and see the same software i.e office, but have very limited rights.

Does this allow users with administrative privileges to remote into your machine which is on a server and view applications such as ACCESS, EXCEL. etc.

If you have Citrix Admin rights, you'll be able to see a Citrix Metaframe console, which will have a remote console options that allows you to (if needed) connect to a user's session/ pc, and troubleshoot/ assist with issues. A message will pop up on the user's screen, stating "Administrator requests to the right to access your session remotely", and the user can accept/ decline it.

Hope that helps.
