Hi,

I want to publish an application in citrix XenApp5.0 by publishing an url in internet explorer. The requirement is as such: when the user clicks on the icon, ie (version 6) launches. Now while launching , a batch file should change its proxy settings, there should not be any menu bar, favorite button, no address bar, etc. Idea here is to prevent the user from browsing any other site other than the url. I tried to do that, it did worked. But the problem is , if someone right clicks on the top bar, he can opt for the address bar etc. I also want once the user closes the ie, all the changes that were done in the registry should reset to original.  This is something I cant do.

Can somebody help me pls....

This line in a batch file will launch a full screen no nonsense window:
call "%programfiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -k "www.google.com"

CHange www.google.com to your website of choice

Only problem is you have to alt-f4 to get out or ctrl+alt+del

You could use the command above to point to an intranet page on your network with differnet hyperlinks to allow a menu like system which would restrict users to those websites.
