Default ASP.Net Application on Citrix

Hello Folks,

My company asked me to explore the possibilities of accessing a business application, developed using ASP.Net through CITRIX.

My knowledge about CITIRIX is very less. I know only this that we won't need HDD on client m/c and it saves cost.

I want to know, it's possible or not? If yes, need guidance.

Thank you in advance.
ONE FOR ALL, ALL FOR ONE

Pawan,

ASP.NET applications would be accessed through a web browser. Citrix supports IIS just fine- so there's no need for any concern if a Citrix user uses IIS to connect to an ASP.NET application run through IIS.

Of course, this begs the additional question:

Why would you run a web based application over a Citrix session?? If you are on a connection that gets you to a Citrix host, you should be able to just hit the web application directly.

What kinds of machines are you running that you can run them without an HDD? And can the cost savings of a few HDDs outway the cost of a Citrix site license? (You must be looking at REALLY expensive hardware.)

Peter,

How about using Citrix Secure Gateway to bring people from the internet inside your network to use internal web apps? I've worked a few places that did that.

Is that an alternative to a VPN connection or is that on top of VPN?

(Please tell me it is because that would solve a significant hurdle here.)

CSG would work instead of a VPN Connection. I'd be happy to discuss remote-access solutions with you, if you want to give me a call.

One of our clients uses Citrix to host our application which is web enabled. The application (written in C++) has some dialogs that host .net webforms.
We are currently experiencing some "strangeness" with regard to user sessions. I suspect that there may be some caching issues on the Citrix server that are causing these problems. Basically, according to the database audit trail, users "appear" to have performed operations on data they do not have access to.
Can anyone comment on how Citrix isolates user sessions? Our app uses integrated windows authentication and I suspect that the problem is due citrix sharing sessions or cached data on the server.
Our validation code (server side, not on Citrix box) does check the integrity of the session information supplied against database session information (i.e. does the userid/sessionid match!).

I can't say I am familiar with how the sessions are isolated. You would be served well by speaking to your Citrix administrator- or if there isn't one where you work, speak to Citrix themselves. You likely have the problem licked by now- but I would have looked at the interop between .NET and C++ as the source of the problem before Citrix.
