Citrix Server

Hi,
1) The company uses Citrix for Remote users
2) I have not yet got an opportunity to Configure the Citrix Server
3) I use to install the Citrix Client
-after installation completed, i should test it
- I configure the Ica32pkg (use the Server name as Citrixserver which are in our network: 192.168.61.0/24; )
- This is for LAN
- For the testing: if i double-click this "Ica32pkg" (for LAN="Local Area Network"), and appear "the login screen" to our domain .....the meaning that the installation is good
- Then i replace it to the Citrix-WAN
4) For the Citrix-WAN ...
- I remember i key in the IP address of 206.128.65.3
5) so for the remote users who wants to connect to our network (even his or her laptop or desktop computer is still in WORKGROUP; not joining our domain ...), he or she just "double-click" the Citrix-WAN icon, and he or she will be in our network
6) My question: What is the IP address of 206.128.65.3? Is it the IP address given by our ISP? Is this IP address an Inside Global Address (which will be used for NAT)? Would you please explain related to this IP Configuration in your own wording please (if possible)
7) Thank you

That is a NAT address used to translate external traffic in through your firewall to reach the LAN IP of your Citrix server.  This is typically set via the command line with the altaddr command:
altaddr /set xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(replace x's with your external IP)
There is also the option to use Address Translations in the Access Management Console.

You only want to use that external IP address when you are on the other side of a NAT firewall or router regardless of domain membership.  The altaddr command is a citrix executable that tells the citrix servers what their firewall (external) IP address is.  It is unnecessary for a scenario when you have direct ICA connections to the server but Web Interface or Application Sets through the Program Neighborhood need the altaddr set or address translations.  

When you have a Citrix Web Interface set up, users who connect to the server from your LAN (behind a NAT device) need the LAN IP and the WI will give that to them.  When users need the NAT'ted IP, you must instruct the WI to sense where they are coming from (normally by defining your internal subnet as a "Default" connection--LAN IP, and all others to get the "alternate" connection--NAT'ted IP).  In the Citrix Access Management Console you configure this in DMZ Settings.

Yep, if you need more detailed answers just put more comments here or open another post.  The Citrix Administrator's Guide is freely available on their site and will really help give you a foundation though.  You might want to pull some documentation so you can come back with more targeted questions.
