Have a situation where session sharing is breaking for the XenApp published 
desktop (with a 12.3 pnagent running on the desktop)There seems to be many 
schools of thought on this process, doing it properly etc etc, using the 
receiver, not using published apps, shortcut creation by anything but citrix - 
but we have use this solution for a number of specific reasons. (namely 1) the 
It team want to be able to dynamically manage shortcuts to users in the start 
menu, and desktop and 2) the citrix receiver 4.x removes the publish to desktop 
I have gone through every citrix hotfix and article re session sharing and i 
have narrowed it down to simplyIf the Published Desktop and the
apps being launched ALL have the access gateway feature DISABLE OR
ENABLED (i.e they match) – session sharing will work, if they differ, it
breaks, (which actually makes sense)
My question is how best to manage the applications internally vs externally and 
keep the session sharing working. What are others using?The dynamic built 
citrix start menu from PNAgent is quick and sleek, and very flexible in terms 
of administration and customisation.
We run appv but chose not to use the short creation feature of this as 'thats 
how the rest of the team used to do it' and wanted to try and keep it simple 
for everyone else.
Do we need to publish a set inside apps (with gateway disabled), and a set of 
outside apps (with gateway enabled)??
Any advice or thoughts appreciated!James
