Microsoft Windows 8 RT and Citrix remote access

Home / Citrix / Microsoft Windows 8 RT and Citrix remote access

Since the public release of Windows 8 RT people try to use Citrix remote access and fail.  The reason for that lies up on decisions made by Citrix.  Many companies have a Web Interface, Secure Gateway infrastructure and the reason why it doesn’t work with Windows 8 RT.

Requirements for Windows 8 RT

  • Access Gateway Enterprise 10.x VPX (min) for remote access (Review the AG product simplification program for free upgrade
  • Citrix StoreFront 1.x StoreFront does NOT support Secure Gateway
  • Receiver TechPreview from the store

That means Web Interface and Secure Gateway needs to be replaced with StoreFront and Access Gateway before you can use Windows 8 RT for remote access to your Citrix environment.
