DirectAccess with UAG and Citrix RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi Sirro,

    afaik Citrix still doenst support DirectAccess (e.g. IPv6 addressing) based remote access. So the workaround outlined in the second link you've provided is still valid. You have to use a Citrix Secure/Access Gateway (CSG or CAG) to IPv6-to-IPv4 proxy the initial client request. Alternativily you can also use a CAG edge deployment where CAG and UAG run in a paralell configuration. In this case you will always bypass UAG DirectAccess (via NRPT) when accessing the CAG portal.

    Regarding the EOL rumours of CSG i could provide those two web pages...

    Q:

    A:

    Citrix recognizes many existing and new customers continue to rely on Secure Gateway to secure their Citrix environments. Therefore, Citrix plans to continue to include and support Secure Gateway as an integral component.

    So i guess the CSG EOL is still a rumour. But i recommend you to contact some Citrix sales guys to get the most accurate/recent information ... ;)

  • Thank you Kai.

    I have found that the Secure Gateway software is on the Presentation Server 4.0 CD2. I'm reading the documentation now and hope I have this up and running soon :)
