do you use a netscaler to publish the citrix session?
this should work with storefront, but possible there are problems with webinterface.
Tell us more about your environment:
- netscaler?
-- if netscaler where do you authenticate
- webinterface/storefront?
- VPN
- XenApp/Xendesktop version?

It's because (as said before) Citrix uses 2 point of entrance (without taking Netscaler or StoreFront/WI into consideration).
One is the webinterface and the other one is the service connection interface.

The first one is for Web access to make it easier for users to connect ot it. This always is an URL (default SStoreFrotn being https://servername.com/Citrix/Webstore or soemthing similar like that) and the service connection being https://servername.com/Citrix/PNAGENT/config.xml).

In windows the latter one is used for connecting with the neighborhood agent (the one that starts automatically and adds applications into your startmenu) but in StoreFront and Netscaler this needs to be added manually as Citrix promotes the use of the webclient.
