Hello - I've installed Citrix XenApp and can gain access through LAN URL
http://win08citrix.rapa.local/Citrix/XenApp/site/default.aspx. I am able to log into Citrix and see all my apps, however whenever I choose one it doesn't respond. Any idea why? I also have a TZ190 firewall and have created a access rule and NAT policy to allow access from WAN primary IP Address, 75.54.44.92. What do I need to do on the Citrix server side to accept this conncection? Do I need to do anything in IIS? Last question, please look at the pic. I cannot connect to citrix host, which is weird cause I can logon to Citrix. Do I need to worry about this? What is this for? I really appreciate the help and look forward on a solution. Thanks so much.

The last question: either create a XenApp Services (AKA PNAgent) site in Web Interface or uninstall the PNAgent client.

Is everything installed on this one server?

Yes everything is installed on this server.

Licensing Server
Web interface Server
Database
etc...

I followed your website instructions and not sure what I missed. Thanks for your response.

I need to add an article for this setup for external web access.  This is probably THEE #1 asked question in the Citrix zone on EE.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Any advice on finding this solution anywhere?

You asked me if I have everything installed on one server, anything I should be concerned about? I'm sure for best pratice, I should get separate servers for Citrix components, however can I still run Citrix without any issues?

I'm looking for a good book. Do you recommend Citrix XenApp Platinum Edition for Windows : The Official Guide by Brian Casselman, Steve Kaplan, Tim Reeser. Does it matter if this is for Platinum and I have Enterprise edition?

Last question, please look at the pic. I cannot connect to citrix host, which is weird cause I can logon to Citrix. Do I need to worry about this? What is this for? Any suggestions on why my apps were opening up and just stop. They do nothing once I login and select them.

Thanks so much.

You will need to run altaddr on your server and set your fw/router to send port 80 or 443 traffic from the public IP address to the internal IP address.

The web interface should be installed on a separate server along with the FREE Citrix Secure Gateway software to secure access to the web interface.  I have a detailed 3 part article on setting that up at http://www.dabcc.com/Webster

The book will not do you much good if you do not already have a solid understanding of XenApp.

Don't worry about the pic.  As I said earlier, either create a XenApp Services site for it to connect to or uninstall the PNAgent client (or whatever the new name is).

Great response and I appreciate all your help. I'm new to XenApp, so what do you recommend me doing to learn Citrix? If not the book, what should I do? i will need to get this up and working for one application, do I really need to install on a separate server (Webserver)?

I have a 7 part Learning series at the link I provided earlier.  You can use that to learn the basics.

For production use I would recommend at minimum 2 servers (preferably 3):

Server 1: Citrix Secure gateway and Web Interface
Server 2: XenApp
Server 3: XenApp #2 for application load balancing
