View Client on Citrix Server?

I have several offshore users who require access the View Virtual Deskops.

Currently the offshore users access resources from a Cirtix farm.

The View Client was installed on the Citrix servers.

Users can authenticate to the View Server, but when a desktop resource is selected, the client "sits" in a connecting state for several minutes, then error out with "The View Client failed to create the rdp control."

I can however connect to the desktop resource directly using the Remote Desktop Connection.

Is the View Client supported on the Windows Server Enterprise 2003 using Citrix?

VMware View Version 3.1.2 Build 188088.

The client is not listed as being supported on Server operating systems. Check out page 17 of the older admin guide, http://www.vmware.com/pdf/view31_manual.pdf. You could setup a security server (similar to Citrix Secure Gateway) and allow them to connect in that method.

Hi,

I have tested this for a similar requirement and it worked - View 4.0.1 - although the performance was not good since there is a protocol conversion happening from ICA to RDP.
