Anyone have any luck using mac citrix client to connect to metaframe server?
my thoughts exactly.. gotta figure this out or possibly go to boot camp which i really dont want to run
I have had experience in this. In fact, at my old job, we had our users connecting from their mac's to metaframe. Worked fine.
were they connecting from within the co.?
im trying to do this from home when i have to check on some stuff.
Yeah, they were connecting from inside the office. In your case, I guess you'd have to open the ports on the firewall to allow your request to go through.
our users have to VPN into our network before they can use Citrix Metaframe
yeah, i was going to suggest maybe a vpn connection or someting. Our users used to have to dial in to use it. (was years ago)
thanks for the replies. what i was afraid of.
would love to know how win clients accomplish this. they have no prob connecting from website
There are a couple of programs on Version tracker, and I'm sure there are more elsewere.
, why? Tell your IT department to invest in reverse proxying if security is that big of a deal.
My organization has ours published so that you don't need a VPN connection to use Citrix, just pop in a URL from anywhere with a Net connection and you're good to go.
What version of Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server is your organization running?
Yeah, I and many people in my organization use it on a daily basis on both platforms, what's wrong?
What's the URL for your organization's Citrix site? If I can take a look at as little as its logon page, I may be able to help you a bit more.
I'm sure it uses SSL to create a VPN for the browser.
Right, it does create a VPN in concept since you have to somehow communicate with a non-routable IP address from the outside, but we never needed to utilize an actual VPN client program to do it though (e.g. Internet Connect or the Cisco VPN Client), which is what I think of when someone talks about using a VPN connection.
Thanks for the suggestions guys. Nearly got it going off some tips above.
