I have previously used Microsoft Terminal Server for users to connect remotely.  I now have Citrix Presentation Server and wish to allow users to log onto our network and have a desktop to work on etc.

The Web interface with Citrix is working fine but after the users logon all the have the option of doing is opening a number of applications rather than setting up a remote session to the server.

Can anyone advise me how I would be able to do this ?

Many thanks in advance

You will need to publish a new application to the Presentation Server.

Open Access Management Colnsole and in the Farm, find the place where you would like the application to reside.  Right click on the top level folder and go to New > Publish Application.

Follow the instructions on screen clicking Next.  Give the application a Display name and Description.  Click Next.

In the second screen, choose Server Desktop.  Click Next.

Add the server that you want to publist the desktop of.  Click Next.

Add either users or groups to the list of allowed users, Click Next.

Chosse an Icon for the application.  Click Next, then click Finish.

Now those people or groups of people should have a desktop application in their web interface.

Hope this is what you're looking for!

Cheers,

Dave
