XenApp 6.5 installation questions

We want to try installing a very basic installation of XenApp 6.5. I see quite a few methods for secure gateways, server farms, etc. We only have 15-20 people who would be using this service. We would only access XenApp from inside our LAN, if someone is outside the LAN, they use Cisco Anyconnect VPN to join the LAN.

Is it possible to set up XenApp  on one server in an easy way that doesnt need secure gateways and other extra components ?

Yes you can if resilience, performance and redundancy are not an issue. So, in this case you will have the license, data collector, XML broker, web interface and SQL Express on one server.

But, in production environments SQL Express is not recommended and redundancy and performance should be catered for. MS SQL should be on a dedicated server. Couple  web interface servers, couple data collectors and one or more session hosts should be a more optimal solution in your case.

And yes, secure gateway is not required!!

Thanks, this sounds like a lot for supporting only 15-20 users. Would XenApp Fundamentals be a better solution for our size?

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish... but from what you have written why not just use Windows Remote Desktop? Formerly, Terminal Services. As you will be required to by the licenses anyways.

But to answer your question, Yes it is possible.
