Citrix single sign on / pass-thru authentication prompts for credentials
Posted on 2008-10-15
I have a Windows XP SP2 client trying to connect to a published app on a Windows 2003 server running Citrix Metaframe XPe using the local user name and password with pass-thru authentication. PASS-THRU AUTHENTICATION WORKS ON EVERY SINGLE COMPUTER EXCEPT THIS ONE. I've checked the following:
* Ensured that ICA Settings/General tab, "Pass-Through Authentication" and "Use local credentials to log on" are both checked.
* Ensured that Properties/Logon Information tab, "local user" radio button is selected and that "Pass-through Authentication" is checked.
* Confirmed that there are no local policies blocking this feature. Changed local policy object Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Citrix Components / Presentation Server Client / User Authentication / Local user name and password from "Not Configured" to "Enabled" to lock in pass-through authentication, denying the user the ability to change this to user-specified credentials.
* In separate tests, added the following lines to the C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\ICAClient\appsvr.ini file.
EnableSSOnThruCAFile=On to the WFClient portion of appsrv.ini.
SSOnUserSetting=On was already in there.
