Citrix Remote Office Deployment - New Citrix Plugin
Posted on 2009-12-23
In my remote offices, I have a point to point T1 line and then a backup internet line as well (DSL, cable, etc). I used to have 2 icons on the desktop using the Custom ICA connections - one pointed right at the IP of the Citrix server internally that would be routed over the point to point t1, and a second icon pointed over the Internet to go over the backup line. My DNS is provided by the local internet so I just pointed it at the public domain of my citrix server.
With version 11.2 of the Citrix Online Plug In, my old way of doing things is completely broken. How can I keep the same functionality I had before?
As soon as I launch 11.2, it asks me for the address of the server. If I put in the public IP here so it goes over the internet, what happens if the local dsl/cable line goes down? It will no longer see that.
I also dont see an easy way to just have a user click a shortcut on the desktop to get to their published desktop.
This just all seems more complicated now than it was before. Does anyone have some suggestions on how I can have the same functionality I used to have with the new client?
