Installing Citrix Secure Gateway and Web Interface (XenApp 6)
In this installment we’ll take a look at setting up Citrix Secure Gateway (CSG) 3.2 and Web Interface (WI) 5.3 together on a single server to provide secure connections to a Citrix XenApp farm. CSG allows clients to make secure connections to our XenApp servers from the Internet without the use of a VPN. I will be using the versions of CSG and WI that are provided with Citrix XenApp 6 and I’ll be installing them on Windows Server 2008 R2. The server will be set up in a DMZ and will not be a member of my Active Directory domain.
This tutorial assumes that you have already installed a XenApp 6 server farm and configured it with published applications. Click here for details on how to install XenApp 6. Also you’ll need to make sure and publish an application on your XenApp server, you can find details in this post. In addition, you’ll need to configure a DNS server or hosts file on your client to allow a domain name to be used when accessing the CSG/WI server from the client.
