Browser session to access published resources

Users can access applications and desktops that have been published through a store on the Citrix StoreFront server or through Citrix Web Interface by using a local browser.

Defining a browser application to access published resources

To provide the users with a browser application to be used directly on the device, the relevant software package for Firefox or Chromium must be installed on the devices.This may require modifications of the image definition file on the web server via ELIAS.

HTTPS connections require the relevant SSL certificates on the device.

  1. Add a new application (see Adding applications) and select the application type Browser.

  2. Edit the following fields:

    Option Description
    Name Name for the browser session
    Browser type Firefox or Chromium
    Called page URL of the Web Interface homepage or StoreFront store.


  3. For the remaining parameters, see Defining a browser application.

The local user starts the browser and is forwarded to the defined page.After successful logon to the StoreFront server or Web Interface server, the published applications, desktops and contents available are shown in the browser window.
