Creating a redirect for citrix page

Last Modified: 2011-01-31
I want to create a redirect for the citrix website to make it easier to remember to the customers. I know one of the ways i.e. is to go to IIS and enter the http address by selecting redirect. Is there any other efficient way to create the redirect? Thanks.

Edit the 'webinterface.htm' file located at c:\inetpub\wwwroot. Change where it says window.location="HTTPS:///Citrix/Metaframe/default.htm"


In this file all I get is :

  Copyright (c) 2000 - 2007 Citrix Systems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
  Web Interface
<script type="text/javascript">
  // -->
So enter the whole url for windows location?

The easiest way that I have found is to create a new Default.htm file in the \inetpub\wwroot\ folder. In the folder put the following code snippet. This will redirect users that go to http://servername to http://servername/Citrix/AccessPlatform.

Make sure you change the URL in the code to be the same long URL to get to the web interface. The number before the URL is the amount in seconds you want the broswer to wait before redirecting. You can have it set to 5 seconds and have the page display something like "Please wait while we redirect you to your web page" and add that text where it says "Optional page text here". I wouldn't recommend adding any time because Citrix already does their own redirection\checking on the initial page.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<title>Your Page Title</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://servername/Citrix/AccessPlatform/"></HEAD>
Optional page text here.
