Receiver detection. The NPAPI plugin that Receiver (Windows and Mac) installs allows Receiver for Web (aka StoreFront) to detect if Citrix Receiver is or is not installed. Without this plugin, it assumes you do not have Receiver and will offer it for you to download and install. As an aside, you may have noticed that Internet Explorer has an ActiveX control that does the same thing. If your user does not have Receiver then they can not launch their Citrix application or desktop, so this is a good thing. If your user is already running Receiver but gets offered the Receiver download this will be confusing and could potentially be a bad thing.
Launching applications and desktops. Let me explain what should happen when you click on the icon for, say, Outlook 2010 in StoreFront (aka Receiver for Web). StoreFront will talk to a delivery controller to figure out what machine is hosting Outlook 2010 and has the lowest load. StoreFront will then offer you a .ica file to download. If you have the plugin, Windows will know that this is a configuration file that should be opened by Receiver. Receiver will then connect you to your application. This all happens quickly and seamless making it seem like Outlook 2010 launches immediately.
Without the plugin, you will download an .ica file but Outlook 2010 will not open until you click it. Chrome does have the option (the arrow on the downloaded file) to \"Always open files of this type\" as shown in CTX136578.
For secure DNS registration, you need a few things in place:1. Latest 13.0 client which supports secure DNS registration, i.e., 184.108.40.206On workstation: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Citrix\\Secure Access Client\\secureDNSUpdate type REG_DWORD and value of 1 or 2. (Secure First or Secure always)2. On appliance: nsapimgr -ys enable_vpn_dns_override=0For non-secure DNS update see: -us/citrix-gateway/current-release/vpn-user-config/configure-plugin-connections/configure-address-pools.html#intranet-ip-dns-registration
Host name based intranet application works only when you have split tunneling set to ON. You are looking for this in reverse split tunneling, which is not supported.

helloOn my windows 7 i have issue with vpn access through citrix netscaler pluginWhen I go on netwokk my citrix virtual adaptater says network cable unpluggedso I cannot ping any or access any servers in my internals network
I am trying to access my work using the Citrix receiver and it works well on my Mac. However on my iPhone 4, I get an error message that Safari can;t download the file. I beleive the file is a *.ica file to launch the Citrixonline plugin or the Citrix receiver app. Any suggestions BTW it works well on a co-workers Android phone.... imagine the grief I am getting! :-)
Ok I guess I should have made it more clear. I am using the suggested app. I have to point to the CAG server in Safari, like I do on my Mac and like my Android brethren. After I log in, I click the link to launch the actual Citrix receiver (or the citrix online plugin) to get to the Windows desktop, and Safari says can't download the file. I was unaware on my Mac that a file was being downloaded, which I suspect is the *.ica file, as it happens very quickly and a small window opens that is the Citrix receiver or the online plugin and VIOLA the Win desktop appears. 153554b96e
