Hi Experts,
I have  installed a XENAPP5 server on a vm with win2008.
So far Citrix is working, internal.
But I cannot connect from external to my created desktops.
The link I have was working in the past, but now not anymore.
How to troubleshoot this error ?

how do you connect to the desktop?
are you using WebInterface,VPN,CSG,CAG,... Firewall...,NAT?
you can try to telnet your Citrix-server at port 1494.

yes we try to connect over the webinterface.
The first login is ok.
But when I click the Desktop Icon then the error 1030 pops up.

The Citrix Web Interface (CWI) runs over ports 80/443.  From what you conveyed,  http/https is configured properly on the firewall, which is why you're able to log in from the outside.  

Published Applications ("created desktops", as you say) use different ports than 80/443.  I suspect your firewall and CWI aren't configured properly for allowing traffic in/out using the proper ports.

Configure your firewall so that these ports are opened (NAT/PAT):

TCP 80, 443, 1494, 2598
UDP 1604

You will also need to configure the settings on your CWI site to accommodate translated access, for which you'll need to reference the Administrator's Guide for your version of CWI.  

Good luck.

try the native client.
the error messages from the native client are more usefull.

if you use NAT there are some more problems.
you need NAT for port 80/443 to reach the WI - this should work because you see the webpage.
then you has to configure address-translation at the WI as 1to1 or to use altaddr at the XenAppServer.
i need many more details about you accesss scenario to offer more help.

if you see the java-error at the client side likely you use the java-client.
if you click the icon - you see a pop-up window with java-startup?

download the client for windows from here:

hi dkotte:

the problem must be on the server.
Because I try to login to the xen desktop with localhost and I have the same error.

It has nothing to do with the firewall.

... repair it:
- within the WI Configuration goto the site and select "repair site"
or create a new one and check if this will work.

... or reinstall the native client at the client-side

... within native client you should not need certificates within the java directory

?... you use private certs to accessing your infrastructure internaly?

I already reinstalled the native client on the client.
We have the same problem with the native client.

I will try the repair site.

Do you know this : SSL handshake failed ?

you can look to the WI-configuration.
there you should see if the CSG connection are configured.
