But AAC can provide access to specific folders and files and apply granular
read, print, save, edit, rights, etc.

 

Also, it can provide access to only specific UNC paths when used in VPN
mode..

AAC doesn't do anything with published apps outside of letting you control
what apps get published based on the AAC filters and applying Citrix
policies based on AAC filters.  It would not modify any sort of
functionality within the application itself.  You have misunderstood what I
was trying to say. 

 

AAC can do checks but they are based on some sort of value.  For instance, a
version of McAfee or Firewall.  If those values change on the client side,
then you must also know the change has happened so you can adjust your EPA
scans.  Otherwise, the EPA's will fail and the users won't get access.

The way I was thinking of would be to redirect your users to different
citrix servers based on their source location. The sensitive users would be
directed to servers with an lmhosts file that 'blocked' the UNC by
overriding the source name's IP resolution. 

 

messy mind.

The only way that I'm aware of to control that type of access through
Presetnation Server is using AAC.  You can then use the filters within AAC
on your published applications.

I asumme this is if you are publishing folders on Juniper?  We publish
Citrix apps on Juniper only....So the control really needs to be within the
citrix session.  

 

Further ideas?

A Juniper device'll let you do it as well won't it? You can allow unc access
and then define roles that would allow access to those resources. You could
either allow full network browse access - or publish the folder themselves
iirc.

All

 

We are after a product that will allow us block sensitive unc's for users.
This of course needs to differ depending on if the user is internal or
external. 

 

When they are external they connect to Citrix via Juniper.  When they are
internal they use either normal desktops or Citrix.

 

I believe by using CAG with AAC we can do this. 

 

Can anybody suggest any other software\hardware\methods that we could to
achieve this?
