NetScaler Website Redirection - The Nice & Elegant Way

[fa icon="pencil'] Posted by Johnny Ma [fa icon="calendar'] August 10, 2016 [fa icon="tags'] Citrix, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, How To Guide, NetScaler

Did you know that you can configure NetScaler so users don’t have to type in the https:// when going to StoreFront or the NetScaler Gateway URLs?

More often than not, this is accomplished using a crude method in which port 80 http Virtual Server is configured on the same IP as the https site and the Redirect URL field in the protection section of the Virtual Server is set. While this works just fine, it unfortunately also renders a permanently Down Virtual Server in the Load Balancing screen.

Good news though, there is a better way to configure the redirection that renders all of the Virtual Servers as Up by using Responder Policies.

Citrix Default Printer Won't Retain in XenDesktop Environment

[fa icon="pencil'] Posted by Brian Olsen [fa icon="calendar'] June 29, 2015 [fa icon="tags'] Citrix, Microsoft, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop

The Windows default printer is a magical thing. This is the printer that is selected by default when you print in an application. Depending on your particular printing workflow this may be the only printer you ever use. Some applications have a quick print functionality that sends a print job to the default printer using default settings and no prompts (for example, portrait orientation and a single copy). To make a printer your default, simply right-click it and select default printer.
