IE published via Citrix allowing only one URL


Please help with publishing Internet Explorer 7 on Citrix (metaframe presentation server 4.0.2)
I would like to publish IE the way that if user clicks on it - IE will open one specific URL, for example

I suppose an 'Application properties' part 'Command line' of published IE should be modified with specific syntax

can you please provide syntax or an example for such solution?

Thank you

This should work:

"c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" ""
You could also launch it in kiosk mode, which will remove address bar etc if you want to tie it down to just that one url.

"c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -k" ""

I tried it but IE does not open, instead it is whole desktop opened
How can I limit users to only open IE with specified url and not open whole desktop?
What is the exact line you used to publish?

"c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -k" ""


Have you set the size of the session ? Set it to 1024x768 and 16 bit color.
truy it without the -k just to see if the result is the same.
you really need to make a Group in AD that the users are member off and just make a blank profile with no desktop images on, then make a logon script that runs Iexplorer in kiosk mode . and disable the startmenu. then you have a citrix that will only open Iexplorer and nothing else . might do some configuration in the GPO in internet explorer settings aswell
