Citrix XenApp Plugin for Hosted Apps

Use the "Online plug-in – web" to access hosted applications and desktops using Windows Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. The Citrix XenApp Web Plugin allows users of any Windows operating system to connect to Virtual Desktop applications.

Using this arrangement is the easiest way to connect to Virtual Desktop applications since all of your application icons are automatically generated and all of your printers and drives are automatically mapped to the Virtual Desktop session. When you browse to the Virtual Desktop Web Interface on a Windows PC, it will automatically detect whether you have the XenApp Web Plugin installed. If it does not detect that the web plugin is present, it will provide a link where it may be downloaded.
