I have a client who would like to access a database we provide on a remote desktop server, running Server 2008 R2.  The client's users' PCs are configured whereby they connect to a Citrix desktop on log-in, and the RDP files I have provided them with don't work.

Can anyone please recommend a work-around for this problem?

You can create the files as shown here

Thanks for your comments guys, I am trying them out.  The messages didn't really help, just the usual 'can't connect to server'.

> where is your client ? outside firewall or internal client ?
> Citrix desktop can connect but rdp client cannot ? did u check client 's firewall ?
> right click and edit your rdp file to see the config is it approiate to client.
> if client  u meant is outside your company then your server should allow 3389 TCP port.

and client side 's IT should allow they outbound TCP 3389

Thanks npsingh123 - it seems your solution did the trick.  We had emailed them RDP files created on a normal desktop, but they apparently needed versions created on their own Citrix desktops.

Thanks too to everybody else who answered - we had tried all the usual 3389 solutions, but to no effect.
