We have a quick look at how these ports are used and differ using Network Monitor 3.4 on Windows 2008 R2 XenApp 6 : Extracting the Client MSIsPosted by Andrew Mallett on 26 February 2011When you access the XenApp Clients on the XenApp 6 Distribution DVD you will see that Citrix provide them as EXE files. If you need to distribute these via tools like Novell’s ZENworks Configuration Management; you may prefer to use MSI files. These are included, just embedded in the EXE file. You will be glad to know it is an easy task to extract. PowerShell : Controlling XenApp 6Posted by Andrew Mallett on 25 February 2011PowerShell is not just for Microsoft Administrators, many other vendors including Citrix have included Modules to allow their Services to be controlled and managed from the command-line. I come from a Linux background so I do understand the need for a functional shell, with so much Vendor buy-in PowerShell is becoming awesome and something not to ignore. Have Internet Explorer 7 and 8 coexist with ZENworks Application Virtualization 8Posted by Andrew Mallett on 19 February 2011Novell’s Application Virtualization can be used the stream applications from a Web Server to the Client’s Desktop, creating your own Cloud; or more simply, creating Stand-Alone Applications that can run independently from other applications on the Desktop. In this tutorial we look at virtualizing Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 so that you can have both IE7 and IE8 on a single host eliminating compatibility issues that you may encounter with either browser.
