I don't know if this is too late, but I had a simple unique use for Citrix I
wanted to share.


A few years back I had a client with a small farm that wanted to give
demonstrations of his software to his customers, but didn't want to pay for
WebEx or similar products.


I created an "Instructor" account and wrote a logon script that I assigned
to several locked down "Student" accounts.  To make it extra easy, the
Students logged on through the Web Interface.


During the Student's logon their logon script first looked to see if the
Instructor had an open session.  If that was true then it would force the
Student to shadow the Instructor's session with no mouse or keyboard input.
If the Instructor didn't have a session, it would terminate the Student's
session.  The audio portion of the demonstration was delivered by a
conference call.
