Cannot pick enhanced client app as initial portal application?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to publish an application for a customer as an enhanced client application. It seems that the UAG will not allow me to set any application that comes from the "Client/Server" template category. Is this a bug or is this by design? Does any one know? This is really annoying.

  • Hi Bryan,

     

    Maybe it will be less annoying if you think about it this way: when setting up the “initial application” of a trunk, you’re actually telling UAG which HTML page to display after successful logon to the trunk. However, the “Client/Server” category of apps do not have any HTML page to display, do they (unless you’re using this template to tunnel a web app)? So what would UAG display in such a case?

    This is why you cannot set “Client/Server” apps as the initial app.

     

    You can however have these apps launch automatically, immediately after trunk logon.

  • To clarify, it seems that the UAG will not let me set anything from the client/server template category to the INITIAL APPLICATION for the portal. Sorry, left that part out.

  • Thanks Ran, it's actually a lot less annoying when we know WHY things work the way that they work. I appreciate the clarification.
