Chapter 4. Publishing Applications through WAN Links

If you're administering a XenApp infrastructure for a while, someone has probably already asked you to give access to published applications for users who are not connected to your local LAN. The external access could be for teleworkers, branch offices, or outsourcers that even work in a different continent.

The Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) protocol is known for its excellent performance over slow links and its low bandwidth usage. In this chapter, you'll learn the following topics:

  • Differences between LAN and WAN links

  • Specific optimizations available in XenApp for WAN links

  • How to test your farm's behavior over WAN links before going to production

  • How to monitor network connections

  • Solutions that Citrix offers to optimize and accelerate WAN connections
