How do I get the Secure Gateway and Web Interface working on the same server?

I have the Citirx Secure Gateway 3.1 and the Citrix Web Interface installed on the same server (Windows Server 2008). I am having difficulty setting up the Secure Gateway. I get almost to the end of the configuration and have an issue connecting to the web interface. I accept the defaults on the "Details of the server running the Web Interface" page. I then choose next and I receive an error that says "Unable to connect to the specified server." (see picture below)

I have the radio button selected next to "Indirect." I also have the box checked next to "Installed on this computer." I left the default TCP port as 80.

I followed the instructions here, but I still receive the same error: http://www.msterminalservices.org/articles/Install-Configure-Citrix-Web-Interface-Secure-Gateway-Part2.html

I can reach the server at https://FQDN:444, but when I try https://FQDN:443 I get the following:
Bad Gateway!
The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

I actually reference this documentation during the installatin process. The problem I encounter occurs at Figure 27 in part 3 of the guide.

Each time, I receive the error "Unable to connect to specified server."

I even added the suggested entries into the hosts file, still no luck.

From the CSG server can you ping the XenApp server by FQDN and or IP?

Yes I can ping the IP address (10.1.1.108) of the XenApp server and the FQDN, which is just it's hostname. I was able to resolve the STA ID from the XenApp server also (Figure 18-19 of Part 3). That leads me to believe the connection between the ticketing agent and the CSG seems to be working. I think it has to be something I've misconfigured for the communication between the WI and the CSG.

Did you check any of the boxes for encrypting any of the traffic between servers?

Can you send me print screens of all the CSG setup steps?  webster at carlwebster dot com

I figured it out. I had originally had AD set up on the XenApp server. When I removed it, it corrupted the administrative profile, which was the installer for most of the programs. I noticed this when I tried to reinstall XenApp for good measure.

After reloading the OS, the installation went without any issues. I did follow your guides again (thank you for that) and only had to make minimal tweaks since I was installing XenApp 5.0 on a W2K8 x64 bit server.

Thanks again for your help. I'll assign partial points for the assist.
