You can have your Secure Gateway and Nfuse / Web Interface on the one
server. Install your SSL cert on this server and put it in your DMZ, only
allow access to port 443 on the CSG. 


The only issue here is that you have an additional server which acts as a
Secure Ticket Authority to support the CSG - the STA should sit outside the
DMZ beside the farm. You have the option of letting the CSG talk to the STA
on port 80, or you can install a SSL cert on the STA as well.


You can publish you application with standard security settings, as the CSG
will encrypt all the traffic using 128 bit SSL. The users never need to
connect directly to the farm servers.

Subject: [THIN] Web Interface 2.0


I am slightly out of touch with Citrix XP Web Interface (I have used NFuse
not Web Interface). My goal is to have a company portal all users can hit
both internal and external to access Citrix applications. 



1) Single web server running Windows 2003, IIS6 and Citrix Web Interface.

2) Purchase SSL cert to secure all web traffic to and from Citrix Web

3) Open 1494 ports into to each Citrix server from the internet.

4) Configure Web Interface for "128Bit only" for ICA traffic



1) Do I need secure gateway? What is secure gateway all about?

2) Can I configure Citrix Web Interface to force "128bit only" for external
users and only use "128bit logon only" for internal users? I don't want to
publish applications twice.


I was planning to read up on this but now I have been told this needs to be
done right now...(my manager never sticks to the schedule).


Thanks for any help!!!
