Fred Donovan from Citrix have updated the whitepaper – Communication Ports Used by Citrix Technologies to version 1.5 (April 2011)

Overview

This document provides an overview of ports that are used by Citrix components and must be considered as part of Virtual Computing architecture, especially if communication traffic traverses network components such as firewalls or proxy servers, where ports must be opened to ensure communication flow.

How to Configure Dazzle for Use with XenApp/XenDesktop and Provisioning Services

Written by Thomas Poppelgaard. Posted in Dazzle, Reciever, XenApp, XenDesktop

I noticed an great Citrix article that Alexander Ervik Johnsen (ervik.as) have pointed to: CTX124932, that i wanna share with you also but i have some thoughts i wanna add to it.

Citrix® Dazzle is the  first self-service “storefront” for enterprise applications. Dazzle  gives corporate employees 24×7 self-service access to a broad array of applications, desktops and content, allowing them to choose exactly what they need, when they need it.

My thoughts:
Citrix® Dazzle is the perfect match with Citrix XenApp & XenDesktop, the article was made, how to best practise implement Citrix® Dazzle in an XenDesktop enviroment. 

Citrix have made an article http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/index.jsp?topic=/dazzle-arran/daz-win-configure-xa-for-dazzle.html, how to “Configure XenApp for the Optimum Dazzle user Experience”,  but i think CTX124932 is also suitable  for configuring Dazzle with XenApp in a Citrix Provisioning Service environment.

Please note that Citrix Dazzle requires Citrix Reciever and the user behaviour is soon changed. 
Citrix release soon Citrix Merchandise 2.0 and Citrix Reciever 2.0, where its possible to distribute a Citrix Reciever without users have to be prompted, the current  Merchandise 1.2 and Citrix Reciever 1.2 requires the users to provide their credentials “first time”, Citrix have listen to the end customers and changed the behavior in the upcoming release.

Hey Thomas,
Great work, thanks. I’m still running into an issue that I cannot seem to resolve. I was hoping you might have an idea where I should look ?
I’ve got an application server with ES5.4, and a separate SQL server with the Reporting installed. I can get to the Reporting websites /reports and /reportserver, but when configuring Reporting within ES, it keeps saying “The report server credentials used to communicate with Reporting Services are invalid”. I tried pretty much everything I think, and cannot get my head around this.
The account that I’m using at the “Report Server Credentials” page, is a domain account, and has admin rights on the application server (for now, local admin) as well as on the Report and ES databases.
I’m a bit lost what else I can check to make this work… Any advise you can give me would be greatly appreciated :-)
Thanks.

Mike
