As a freelancer, I encounter quite often Citrix pitfalls customer tend to step in. Since I have seen them many times I can quickly fix them to the surprise of the administrator in charge.
Now here is a list of common Citrix pitfalls:
- After the setup of StoreFront you or anyone else cannot login. Delivery Controller are set and everything looks fine.
Most common issue: By default, the Delivery Controller TCP port is set to 443 and NOT port 80! XenDesktop Delivery Controller or XenApp are not using 443 by default and therefore will not response to requests.
Quick Fix: Change to HTTP and TCP port 80 in the Delivery Controller properties
Best Fix: Especially if you run StoreFront on the Delivery Controller - Enable SSL/443 with either a private or public certificate.
