Citrix CAG from corporate machines/logistics
Posted on 2012-09-21
I have got to do a quick assessment of what could go wrong in our new ways of working. We have recently become a departmental partnership whereby we can be doing work for 2 different businesses – totally separate networks. Both have a citrix access gateway facility. My understanding is it’s basically just a case of vising a URL and entering domain credentials (neither currently use 2-factor) to use a CAG.
At present each user has a dedicated PC joined to both businesses networks for use. Each user needs to be able to access the other business file servers and vice versa.
1) What will be needed on the PC’s at both business to be able to access the others CAG
2) Can you think of any internal IT administrative concerns/roadblocks that would prevent users accessing the other businesses CAG from the other businesses PC’s – however far fetched (i.e. install of software to make CAG work, bandwidth using CAG, licence issues incurred by the business to allow facility to another companies system etc etc)
Im basically coming from you, as network admin A, get a request that 10 users need to access citrix CAG for another company from your machines in your network. What are your concerns/qualms
