Publishing RDP icon on Citrix

Hello Experts

We are running Citrix PS4.5 on Windows 2003 servers.

We have one 4.5 Web Interface and about twenty PS servers.

Different departments have their own IT staff for their own application servers (e.g. Server1, Server2, Server3). I would like to publish the RDP app on the Web Interface (which is externally accessible) but have it so that different RDP apps (which we publish to different departments) are for individual servers.

As per my question here:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/System_Utilities/Remote_Access/Citrix/Q_24906553.html

I can do this:

mstsc.exe "C:\PublishedContent\InternalServer.rdp"

But I also want to load balance where the RDP is actually running, how is this possible?

Hello, I just tested this and it works like a charm.  It will load balance just like any other Citrix application between any servers you include in the properties of the application.

Hi BLipman - thanks for testing, but what did you test exactly?

Was it this command:

mstsc.exe "C:\PublishedContent\InternalServer.rdp"

Thanks!

I made a published application with the path above and had an RDP file saved pointing to one of my servers.  When I launched the application you don't get the RDP options to change server, you log in and remote into the server.  If you just publish mstsc.exe then the user gets the RDP interface and can specify the server among the other options.
