I would like to know , if citrix remote users( connecting from home) will connect to citrix xenapp and use published applications or published desktop, via the citrix receiver or they need to login to web interface and see their published applications/desktops.
I mean,  a user inside the network can either open citrix receiver from the task bar and will be able to see and launch the published Application, or they can open internet browser and login to webinterface and see and launch the published applications. so if the same user will go home , will s/he be able to do the same thing ? or s/he can only use the webinterface ?

any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Users can access application using both citrix client and citrix web interface url. If user from home or office not an issue. Only thing you need to make sure you have configure the network settings to connect the published apps from nay where.

would users from home have first to connect through VPN, then click on the published application that should show up in citrix receiver? OR there is no need to connect through VPN ?

no, home-users don't need VPN.
if you publish your citrix to the internet (using netscaler-gateway) you have an "application-level-ssl-vpn".
The receiver uses this "micro-ssl-pvn" without knowledge or intervention by the user.

As dkotte mentioned, If you have netscaler gateway in your environment then no need to connect vpn or else you need to connect the vpn to access the application.

skar is right. You do the same like internally users.
but you don't need the netscaler gateway plugin for ICA-only sessions.
The default Receiver know how to make a (citrix-ICA-) ssl-connection.
The gateway plugin you need for real ssl-vpn and endpoint checks only.

by default the user need the citrix receiver. This client can be downloaded from citrix webpage.
But now with storefront the user can open the session within a HTML5 browser also ... without installing a client.
This is not really fast, no seamless mode, but access from everywhere and nearly every device.
