My customer is using Citrix Xenapp 6 and has a Citrix Secure Gateway server that allows remote connections.

The remote users are all PC users and the way it is configured at the moment is such that all users have to add the ip address of the CSG server into their hosts file and install a self cert certificate.

There is no 3rd party SSL certificate as the internal domain name was setup before it was realised that someone else was using it.  I have a GoDaddy SSL certificate that references the actual company domain name and this is used for OWA and Outlook on iPhones and allows external users to connect to these services.

However, they now have some iPads and want to use the Citrix Receiver to connect to the Citrix Farm.  I have no way of modifying the hosts file without jailbreaking the device.

I am thinking of adding another SAN ( to my goDaddy SSL certificate an then using a different SSL port to fire inbound traffic to the CSG server.

This should get over the iPad hosts file issue but will traffic be able to flow between the CSG and Citrix Server Farm?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
