CITRIX

Remote Logon Procedure for Citrix XenApp Sessions

If you have previously completed Stage 1 and 2, please proceed to Stage 3, or click this link if you have used this system before: http://remote.downslaw.co.uk

Though these instruction were written for the Internet Explorer, generally people have less trouble when connecting through Firefox.  This web browser is optional and can be downloaded from www.mozilla.com

 

Stage 1

Before proceeding, if you have not already done so, you must install the “Citrix Receiver" version 3.1 or above.

To do this, go to www.citrix.com and click on “Downloads”

(Please note that Citrix often change their website therefore we cannot give specific links however the site does stay generally the same)

Locate “Citrix Receiver" on the download page, and download it to your computer.

You can run the install from the download notification, or save it and run it afterwards from the location you downladed it to.  Gernerally, it is easier to run it rather than save it.

If you choose to save it, once downloaded you need to run the file, either directly from the download window, or by double clicking on it from where you saved it to.

The installation is very simple, follow it through to the end until it confirms it is installed.

This is the end of stage 1.

 

Stage 2

Open the Internet Explorer (or other web browser) and in the address bar, type in:

remote.downslaw.co.uk

and then hit Return.

At the top of the screen, you should see a yellow warning bar saying “The previous webpage might require the following add-on: ‘Citrix Systems, Inc’……..”

Note: If you do not see this bar, then you can skip this Stage.

Left click on the yellow bar (not on the X), and choose “Run Add-on on All Websites”, then “Run” on the small window.

Close the Internet Explorer.

Stage 2 is complete.
