Hi Jeremy - forgive me I'm a citrix newbie.....from what I have read and played 
with I'm thinking that would only work if the client PC/user is part of the 
same domain, yes or no?

In our case we have two distinct untrusted domains.  We want the credentials 
that they enter on the Web Interface to be passed on to the online plugin on 
the XenApp server desktop.

Hi Aaron,

It should be single sign-on if you've configured authentication methods to ONLY 
use pass-through on the PNAgent (XenApp Services) site of the Web Interface 

If it still prompts users, then this is usually related to IE security and 
proxy settings, as the online plugin will use the IE settings by default. There 
are a couple of different ways to address this...

-          The easiest by far is to set the Client-Side Proxy setting on the 
PNAgent (XenApp Services) site of the Web Interface server to none. This will 
be pushed down to the client, so traffic will go direct.

-          You could also ensure you are excluding the Web Interface server(s) 
in you proxy config. This does not work as expected if you are using a wpad.dat 
to auto configure the Proxy settings.

Regardless of the proxy setting, you also need to add your Web Interface site 
as a Trusted Site.

Subject: [THIN] Online Plugin Question with Xenapp Desktops

Hi - we are building out a new environment for a hosted client and they want to 
use hosted desktops. We normally we only provide clients with seamless apps so 
I'm not sure how to set this up.

So far I have figured out how auto launch the desktop from the WI and we have 
cleaned up and locked down the start menu. We are using the plugin to populate 
the start menu with the apps that the users access too. My current obstacle is 
getting the online plugin not to prompt the end user for their credentials 
since they already entered them at the WI login screen. Do I need to setup 
Single Sign On or is there a GPO/Reg Key I can apply? Also am I on the right 
track or should I do this another way?

Thank you,
