Hi Eperts,
could you please tell me which are the ports need to open on firewall in my dmz setup for citrix farm. Our users will be accessing applications through Web interface 5.1.1 and Secure Gateway 3.1, server hosting the WI nd SG will be on DMZ.
So tell me which port no. on which firewall need to open. If we could categoris first firewall and 2nd firewall. First firewall is from the public end.

Thanks in advance.

1494 = ICA
2598 = Session Reliability
80 = HTTP
443= HTTPS

You'll need to allow HTTP/HTTPS (whichever you are using...hopefully HTTPS) from the Internet to the CSG/WI server in your DMZ.  You'll need to allow 80 and 1494/2598 (depending upon whether you use Session Reliability) from your DMZ to private network.

Hi Amichaell,

thanks for your replpy, i would like to confirm that we are using HTTPS so we need to open 443 only from internet to DMZ. And we are using XML service port 8080 so do we need to open only 1494/2598 and 8080 from DMZ to private network. I would like to confirm that we don't need to open port 80 on either way. Just confirm.

If XML is running over 8080 then you'll need 8080 rather than 80 from your DMZ to private network.  I'm fairly certain you don't need 1494/2598 opened between the Internet and your DMZ, though those links should confirm or deny.
