Publishing an internal site to only be accessed through Citrix and not locally
Posted on 2010-09-08
We are currently running Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 and we have an internal site that only works on IE 6. We are in the process of upgrading our local machine to Windows 7 and it will be setup to use IE 8. Since this internal site is not configured to run on anything other then IE6 we are wanting to find an easier way to re-direct our customers to use Citrix instead. We currently publish this site as an available application but since we want to prevent the users from accessing this site internally on their local machines we need a way to force them to use Citrix. We are currently using an IE redirect application that if this address is typed into the browser locally it will be blocked and an error reminding them to use the publsihed application version will be displayed.
I know with content redirection we can set the site to redirect them to use their local browser I just wasn't sure if this could be configured to go the opposite way. If this address is entered it would launch it on Citrix. Any assistance is appreciated.
I will offer max points for a solution since this is currently a big deal here at my place or work. Thanks.
