Cannot Connect to Published Application or Application Set on new Citrix Install

I have just installed Citrix Xenapp 5 for Windows 2003 server on a machine. I think I have everything setup properly but I cannot connect to the web interface nor can I see any published applications. When I try to go to the web interface it just gives me the generic page under construction message. When I try to connect via Citrix Program Neighborhood it gives me this message:

The network connection to your application was interrupted. Try to access your application later, or contact technical support.

When I try to connect via the Citrix online plug in it says:

Citrix online plug-in could not contact the server. Please check your network connection.

When going through Citrix Program Neighborhood it does find the farm name, so I guess that's a good thing. It has been a while since I have had to install Citrix so there is a possibility I am doing something wrong. I have tried going through all the documentation but they are all pretty tough reads and never seem to exactly answer any questions that I have.

Any help I could receive on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have a 12-part series that will walk you step-by-step thru this entire process.  You can use the series to see if there is anything you overlooked or have not configured.

Hi, DId you create a site? You need to install web interface and need to two things.

Site for web interface and site for PN agent. Once you configure that you will be able to connect.

I did not specifically do anything to create a site for either the web interface or the PN agent. I thought they would be created by default. I will review the link provided by CarlWebster to see what I am missing there, but if you can tell me what I need to do to add the two sites I would be happy to give that a try in the meantime.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

I am teaching an Exchange 2010 Design class this week so my time is very limited.

You will need to go into the Web Interface and create a standard site and a XenApp Services Site (PNAgent Site).  THe name will depend on what version of Web Interface you are using.

My articles will walk you step-by-step thru creating both sites and configuring them.

This is better for the XenApp Services Site (PNAgent):

CarlWebster,
  Thank you so much for responding to my question as well as making that guide available. It turned out I actually had a wide variety of configuration problems that were causing issues, but using the guide I was able to get them all corrected and get the server up and running.
