Configuring the Client Choices Page

You can configure Citrix Gateway to provide users with multiple logon options. By configuring the client choices page, users have the option of logging on from one location with the following choices:

  • Citrix Gateway plug-in for Windows
  • Citrix Gateway plug-in for Mac OS X
  • Citrix Gateway plug-in for Java
  • StoreFront
  • Web Interface
  • Clientless access

Users log on to Citrix Gateway by using the web address in the certificate bound to Citrix Gateway or the virtual server. By creating a session policy and profile, you can determine the logon choices users receive. Depending on how you configure Citrix Gateway, the client choices page displays up to three icons representing the following logon choices:

  • Network Access. When users log on to Citrix Gateway for the first time by using a web browser and then select Network Access, the download page appears. When users click Download, the plug-in downloads and installs on the user device. When the download and installation is complete, the Access Interface appears. If you install a newer or revert to an older version of Citrix Gateway, the Citrix Gateway plug-in for Windows silently upgrades or downgrades to the version on the appliance. If users connect by using the Citrix Gateway plug-in for Mac, the plug-in silently upgrades if a new appliance version is detected when users log on. This version of the plug-in does not silently downgrade.
  • Web Interface or StoreFront. If users select the Web Interface to log on, the Web Interface page appears. Users can then access their published applications or virtual desktops. If users select StoreFront to log on, Receiver opens and users can access applications and desktops. Note: If you configure StoreFront as a client choice, applications and desktops do not appear in the left pane of the Access Interface.
  • Clientless access. If users select clientless access to log on, the Access Interface or your customized home page appears. In the Access Interface, users can navigate to file shares, web sites, and use Outlook Web Access.

If users select the Citrix Gateway plug-in for Java, the plug-in starts and users are logged on. The choices page does not appear.

Secure Browse allows users to connect through Citrix Gateway from an iOS device. If you enable Secure Browse, when users log on by using Secure Hub, Secure Browse disables the client choices page.
