Hi Experts,

      I’m trying to connect their Iphone Ipad to our Xenapp 6 citrix services.
Internally, it’s working fine.. I can open all application available from the citrix receiver. When user are outside the office, they should connect the iphone or ipad to our office network with Anyconnect. I know the vpn on because I can do a remote desktop on the server. (So small on iphone!) When they are VPN connected, the cannot reach the citrix server for an unknown reason. I know the citrix service works across VPN because some users are connected from their laptop and can open the citrix service across VPN.  

Anybody know if I need special setting on my VPN, Citrix, or iphone to get connected properly?

Thanks,

Are you allowing all ports and protocols across the VPN?  This should work like you are saying...

The way I suggest troubleshooting is using a PC with the XenApp OnlinePlugin (the old PNAgent stuff).  You enter the URL just like in iPad/phone/receiver and it should work via the VPN.

Yes i'm allowing all port /protocol and also removed NAT.
Salesman using laptop can connect to VPN and open Citrix online plugin v12 and it's working fine for them..  but know they bought some Ipad and want them connected too...  :(

On the Iphone, server line, i'm writing http:xenapp as the server name.. ( that works internally)  I also tried the full FQDN http:xenapp.domain.local/citrix/pnagent/config.xml 
still without success..

There are two ways I know of to get this working:

1) use Citrix Secure Gateway to tunnel the XenApp Services Site traffic through the firewall w/ no VPN (CSG is a free add-on that comes with the main Citrix product)

2) use address translation rules in the XA Services Site to make sure the right IP/port combos are provided to the devices.  

I am not sure why the pad would not work when the full client does, are you using SSL on the XA Services Site?

Hi there,

Finally, I create another profile without split tunneling for the VPN and it’s working fine now..   I was able to RDP because server name was in ”cache”  2 days later I wasn’t able.. so I conclude about DNS error..    Laptops are already on the domain so they add mydomain.local by default on every query..  Not the Ipad..    Internally, citrix.mydomain.ca was redirect properly..  but vpn connected with split tunneling send DNS query to external DNS server.  Result of unresolved request..

I,m not sure if it’s the best way to do it.. but it’s working and management are happy..

i also post on that tread http://www.brianmadden.com/forums/t/48724.aspx

Alternative method is used.. but probably not optimal method.
