We are looking at allowing remote access / work from home arrangement for file server, email, database/biz apps.

Can anyone shore their experience with sizing Citrix capacity? i.e.
- average WAN bandwidth per user,
- Server memory per user
- CPU requirements per user?

Any other key issues to consider? thanks.

On a 32bit dual core server with 4GB RAM you'll likely get anywhere from 25-50 users depending upon your applications and whether you are offering full desktops or just published applications.  We get 25-30 users on our 32bit XenApp servers due to our EMR and EPM applications, and handing out full desktops.  Running less intensive applications will permit more connections.

I apologize.  I did not realize this pertains to running under Solaris, for which I've no experience.  Please disregard my previous post.

We have 2 socket Xeon dual cores with 4GB RAM and we can get more than 35 users comfortably on a server.  We don't publish desktops, just Outlook, Custom Access applications, Excel, Acrobat reader.
