  1. A Comprehensive Guide to Enabling Pass-Through Authentication with XenDesktop 7.5

    I know what you're thinking; "Come on Jason! Do we really need another article, whitepaper or guide on how to enable pass-through authentication?". Well... yes we do. Here is why: There are several resources out there on Citrix.com as well as other third-party sites on this topic.

    Tick, Tock - The Countdown to StoreFront Web Interface is set to go end of life next year. The question is no longer “if” you will be migrating to StoreFront, but rather “when” you will be migrating. Lucky for you, time is still on your side but don't let that be your excuse to procrastinate. For more than 13 years, I have lived, breathed and dreamt about ...

  3. Introducing the StoreFront Store Customization SDK

    StoreFront attempts to cover the most customer use cases with standard product features and with configuration. Previously in WI it was common to deploy a code customisation to provide some of this type of functionality (e.g. optimal NetScaler Gateway routing). However, it's not possible to capture every business requirement customers have and so the 2.5 release of StoreFront introduces the 'Store Customization SDK'. This can ...

  6. Parallel Resource Enumeration in StoreFront

    In Web Interface and earlier releases of StoreFront, if you configure a Web Interface site or a store to deliver resources from multiple XenApp farms and/or XenDesktop sites, these farms/sites are communicated sequentially to enumerate all resources available for users. When you have a large number of farms/sites or high latency network connections for some farms/sites, resource enumeration would take a long time and the clients ...

  7. Adding a domain list for Receiver authentication to Storefront

    The Storefront authentication service can be configured such that when a native Receiver or Receiver for Web is performing explicit authentication a drop down list of domains is shown for user selection. To enable this list, locate the web.config file in the directory for the Storefront authentication service (normally c:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\authentication\web.config). Open the file in a text editor. Locate the following section of the file: <explicitBL authenticator="defaultDelegatedAuthenticator" hideDomainField="true" ... ...
