Access Gateway vs. Secure Gateway Part 2: It's In The Details

In part 1 I discussed how I believe that proving identity should be your most important consideration when deciding to implement the Citrix Access Gateway or Secure Gateway for remote access. In this second part I want to discuss some of the features of both the Access Gateway (CAG) and the Secure Gateway (CSG) and how they compare.

Publishing Outlook Web Access on an Alternate Port

We recently had client with a requirement to provide Outlook Web Access and Exchange over the Internet/Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTPS) access using a single IP address on ISA Server.

RPC over HTTPS with Outlook can’t use an alternate port - if you attempt to specify and alternate port Outlook UI you receive the following error:

Swivel PINsafe and Citrix Access Gateway Installation Notes

The good guys over at Swivel have let me post a document that Graham Field (from Swivel) has created for integrating Swivel PINsafe into Access Gateway Advanced Edition 4.5. The document covers everything you’ll need to get PINsafe authentication working with Advanced Access Control, including setting up Turing or Single Channel authentication (use to stop bots not humans). You get a copy of the document in Word format here and the LOGIN.ASCX with the code for setting up the Turing authentication here.
