So this is one of those topics why I actually started this blog. I’m preparing our environment for a big upgrade off all Citrix Receivers, implement Storefront and decommission our last two webinterface servers. A nice job which already gave me quite a headache. So in this tut I will try to give you the complete tutorial how to implement NSGW with Storefront so the Receiver can actually SSO, and all traffic is routed through the NetScaler Gateway.

At the moment I’m preparing for my CCE exam and one of the things I like to do is perform several setups. For this tutorial I implemented a XenDesktop & XenApp 7.5 server. A StoreFront server and a virtual NetScaler with a developer license. I already have in place a CA for my self signed certs, the domain joined machines automatically trust the Root CA cert and a Domain Controller is in place.

The goal of the tutorial is to get the StoreFront websites running on SSL. The XML traffic should be encrypted and the NetScaler has to connect to the StoreFront servers through SSL. Let’s start!

So at the moment we’re testing a lot of new devices in combination with our XenApp 6.5/NetScaler infra, which ofcourse is a lot of fun. I ran into this problem, which I thought was poorly documented. So there we go…. You get the well known error “You do not have the proper encryption level to access this Session” when firing up your app. using the new HTML5 receiver (eg. with Chrome or Opera or Firefox).

Error: Citrix online plug-in Configuration Manager: No value could be found for (AllowHotkey) that satisfies all lockdown requiremants. The lockdown requirements in force may be conflicting. Error 2320.

So this was not a nice one we encountered recently. Users throughout our whole farm got application freezes. Users literally got ‘Citrix not Responding’ messages on application launch or when trying to access printers. In the application eventlog WFICA32.EXE Application Hangs (event 1002) were generated with data: ‘The program WFICA32.EXE stopped interacting with Windows and was closed.’

When you launch a published application via the Citrix WebInterface, a WFCRUN32.EXE /? popup appears. Your application will not launch. Your application will launch when you use the PNAgent. Your application will also launch when you browse to your %temp% folder and doubleclick the created .ica file.

This is probably a bug. Starting from version 11.2 Citrix might have changed something in the way the plugin uses ActiveX. When you click an application in your Citrix WebInterface the popup below shows.
