[THIN] Re: Web Interface and access via groups/permissions

Hi,

Yap :(  The number of servers was the questions that I forgot to ask.
You can also export the registry entries for the new listener and import
them to each server's registry. This could be deployed by SMS or
something similar.  It would take some time to implement in the
beginning but would be easy to manage after that.  Just a thought. I
have done this for our servers and would be glad to help.

Stephen, interesting idea.  Can I assume I would need to do this to all
105 Citrix servers then?

Hi,

You could create a 2nd ICA listener on your Metaframe server using port
1495 for example. Set permissions on this listener to only allow "remote
access" users to logon using this listener. Then redirect your external
Web Interface site to this listener.  This way if users are not in the
remote access group they can not log in remotely. This makes it really
easy to determine who had remote access. You can also further restrict
what users can do when they connect via external devices.

I apologize if this has been discussed, but I have not found the magic
bullet yet.

We rolled out Web Interface to our users and they went absolutely nuts.
They love it.  Actually told me it's one of the best things my group has
done on the last 10 years.  I "think" that may be a compliment.

HR, however, has just come up with a reason to give us heartburn over
this - hourly employees.  We never saw it coming.  They are concerned
about hourly employees working too many hours.  Apparently they can come
back and take the company to court for payment for time they worked.  I
never knew about that piece before, but I definitely understand it now.

We have 2 Web Interface environments here; an internal one and an
external one that also uses CSG.  This is all version 2 by the way.

Is there a way to either give permissions to users that need it or do a
deny for folks that shouldn't have it?  This will appease the HR folks
and we can continue to move forward with our rollout.
