    Re: starter

    this is off the top of my head - I don't have alot of experience with Citrix.

    Xen App Presentation Server is the "terminal services" portion - this is your physical citrix server, that has the applications installed on it, that are then published via the web interface.

    The Citrix Access Gateway is an authentication and access gateway that connects to the Presentation server.


    Please don't take this as gospel - I may be very incorrect... hopefully someone will come along and correct or confirm my supposition.

    I can't really tell you whichj to start with sorry :/
    Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point https://www.petri.com/forums/core/im.../icon_beer.gif

          jdsony,

          Besides the reading material that yuval14 mentions if you creat a "MyCitrix" account you can download a developer version of XenApp to run. It supports two concurrent connections and should be enough to at least get your feet wet playing with Xenapp (installing, configuring, etc) More information located HERE. Hope that helps.
