Hi,
We have a Citrix secure gateway in comination with web interface 5.3 and it works fine. We host two sites. One is connected to a Xenapp 5.x environment with a secure ticket authority on a Xenapp 5.x server. The other site is connected to a Xenapp 6.5 server and that is working fine in combination with a xenapp 5.x secure ticket authority but when i connect to a Xenapp 6.5 secure ticket authority it is not working. In the eventvwr i see messages like "SSL handshake from client failed."and "Client IP sent bad ticket, connection dropped." and "Incoming Citrix Gateway Protocol downstream data could not be processed." What is wrong?

any citrix server can be a STA, try changing to a different server in the XenApp6.5 farm. Windows firewall enabled on the STA?

Also, consider moving to storefront as web interface is going away.

Double check your WI config for the XA6.5 farm and confirm that the appropriate server(s) are listed as the STA(s).  It sounds like there might just be an error here.

It is still not working. How can i check if a server is a STA and how can i check that it is working?

all STA's used within a WebInterface Configuration should be listed within the CSG-Config.
The CSG configuration has to know every STA used within someone WI-Config. (the summary of all STA's)
you can check the STA with the CSG-check-tool (available from the CSG console) .

runs XML/STA IIS integrated or standalone (changed XML-Port "ctxxmlss.exe")?
with IIS integration you have a log file configured within c:\inetpub\Scripts\CtxSta.config

Strange, i don't see the scripts directory in c:\inetpub.
Might this be the issue:

In the Citrix Web Interface Management Console, in the Secure Access Settings the Secure Ticket Authority URL was not the same as in the Secure GateWay Configuration.

When we added the same Server(URL) we could login with the new Servers' STA ID.
