Is it possible to upload files to an ftp server hosted internally from external Citrix clients?
How can this be done via Citirx Presentation Server if at all?
I currently have the Citrix environment setup to facilitate access to published applications for external clients.

you can map the client drives for the user will this suffice?

Then they can just use windows explorer and drag and drop the files from their local drive to where ever you want them to go.

No luck, the client drive on the ica setting is set to map however  I am unable to transfer files between the host pc and the ICA session.
What is required for this to be possible? I am using the Citrix client to access a remote desktop session and the ftp site is being accessed from the remote session machine.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

ok so let me get this straight.

You connect to a citrix desktop from a pc which is located outside the citrix server network.

Inside the citrix desktop when you go to explorer you can see the citrix server desktops and also the client drives.

If so when you click on the client c:\ inside the citrix desktop does it display the files or do you get an error?

I have made some inroads with this albeit small.

To clarify, I connect from a machine located outside the citrix network to a published remote desktop. That published remote desktop allows me to connect to a machine on the internal network. Once within that machine I am able to view my external client local drives and thus upload information, which is fine. Problem now is that the external client is able to view my server drives as well from explorer, how do I remove these from being seen by the external client?

If it's a win 2003 or better server you can apply a gpo that hides the local hard drives and prevents access to them for specified users.

Enabled the remote desktop drive mappings and restricted access to the server drives. Files can be transferred between client drives and server drive via local ftp site on the server.
