  1. Promiscuous Authentication

    A growing number of customers use a single NetScaler Gateway virtual server to access XenApp/XenDesktop/XenMobile delivery controllers residing in multiple domains in the corporate network. One of the reasons might be that StoreFront, different to Web Interface, requires domain membership - so when you use Single Sign-On with NetScaler Gateway you need to know to which StoreFront cluster to direct users after a successful authentication ...

  2. EPA scans are not for everybody

    A customer of one of my Citrix Consulting colleagues recently came up with an interesting request. Like many others they are using Citrix NetScaler’s Access Gateway Enterprise Edition module to grant remote secure remote access to applications and desktops.

  6. bash-ing XenServer

    Recently one of my fellow Consulting colleagues asked around whether anybody knew of a script to export all VM names and the MAC addresses of their virtual interfaces. A list like this could be useful not only for tracking and network management purposes (think of NAC) but also to create DHCP reservations (For Linux geeks, you can probably stop reading here because I don't want ...
