We are installing Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 on a dedicated Windows 2008 Server. It's a Dell machine with 700+ gigs on a RAID-6 with two quad-core processors.
We only have licenses for 10 simultaneous Citrix users. We are trying to decide the bandwidth needs.
The applications users will be using will be Outlook, Word, WordPerfect (it's a law firm). Prolaw and Summation.
My understanding of the purpose of Citrix is so individuals can run in a think client and run the applications off the server. The technology basically sends the screen to the user's workstation (like VNC, RDC), correct? So, the bandwidth requirements are minimal, no?
Do we need a T1 1.5M or T1 3.0M? Apparently firewall hardware with support and all cost upwards of $4k to handle these speeds. The price difference in the bandwidth plans is $3600 a year. Thoughts?
