Microsoft License RDS External Connector Question

I have an RDS external license connector as well as a windows external connector license. What I plan on doing is giving 3rd party users access to a citrix application. The part I guess I am confused about is for creation of the 3rd party users, is the license for me creating them in active directory or is through the license do I have to create them locally on the citrix server? I don't want my AD user CAL count to go up so confused on where to create these external users. Any info or links to some docs explaining this would be great.

Thanks

The problem is the external connector is only good for anonymous users.  You *cannot* use it for named accounts (it won't work). You can use the Citrix tools to create more anonymous users, and the connector license is only good for 1 server.. you have to have one license for each server you want to use.

That is the big issue with the external connector and why it is so rarely used :-\
