I have been given these directions:

Go into Web Interface mgmt

Click on the site
Click on Client Deployment
Select Client for Java
click, IIRC, settings
make sure SSL/TLS is select if you are using SSL.

OK out of everything
______________________________________________________________________

My question is, how do I access the Web Interface mgmt?

Which Citrix program do I have to open to do this?

Please provide simple instructions for someone who doesn't know much about Citrix.

Depends on your version of Web Interface.  WI 5.3 and 5.4 have a separte mgmt console.  5.2 and earlier were managed from the Delivery Services Console/Access Mgmt COnsole/Access Suite COnsole, running discovery on the server you installed WI on and selecting Web Interface.

Are you able to tell me exactly which Citrix program I need to open in order to be able to access the Web  Interface?

Or, what do I need to do to determine what version of Web Interface is being used?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

c:\program files\citrix\web interface\ the next folder level should be the version.

If you are running WI 5.3 or 5.4 you will use the Web Interface Mgmt Console.

If you are running versions prior to 5.3 and you have not updated the mgmt consoles you will use the Access Mgmt Console.

If you are running versions prior to 5.3 and you have updated the mgmt consoles you will use the Delivery Services Console.

This is what I see in the Citrix Access Management Console (see the screenshot).

I can't find a Delivery Services Console anywhere. What do I need to do to access the Delivery Services Console?

Or, do I simply need to go to a certain place within the Citrix Access Management Console to be able to access the Web Interface mgmt?

Sorry, I am very new to Citrix. Thank you for your help.

I've been reading the Web Interface Guide and from what I can tell, I don't think that I have this option installed on my Citrix servers.

Is there an easier way of installing the Citrix Web Interface, or do I have to follow all of the instructions that are contained in this guide? I see that there are several perquisites and configuration steps that are required.

You have to have IIS, J# and one other item installed if you are going to install WI by itself.  Best thing is to just use the XenApp installer and then select WI only.  That will install everything but IIS.

CarlWebster, how do I install these components that you have just mentioned?
0
Carl WebsterCommented:
If you have the XenApp install files, they are all in there.  Either in the Support or Resource folder.

CarlWebster,

Would you be able to give me more detailed instructions on exactly how I would install these components (such as which files I execute to perform the installations, etc.).

As I have mentioned, I am very new to Citrix.

Thank you for your help.

I am not where I have access to the install files.

Start to install Web Interface and it will tell you it needs whatever, say J#.  Go to the Support or Resource folder and find the executable that has J# in the name and run it.  Then repeat.

Resolved the issue by installing Mozilla Firefox and uninstalling Safari.

Now the only Internet browser on the Mac laptop is Mozilla.

Mozilla is able to launch these Citrix applications without any problems.
