Whether you are configuring thin client model dedicated to single Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, you may configure dedicated parameters depending from it. See next chapters for detailed informations.
To complete the configuration, click on "Finish".
Thin Client Model dedicated to Citrix Infrastructure
On the last window you can enter the informations related on Citrix server.
By selecting "Retrieve PNAgent site URL from DHCP" you configure the thin client to use the URL provided by the network via the DHCP Option 181.
By selecting "Enter PNAgent site URL" you have to insert the URL for the Citrix server in the field.
The URL has to be inserted (or saved to the DHCP Option 181) in the correct form and depend on the server type.
Whether only an IP Address (or hostname) is entered, the URL will be completed using "http" as protocol and the XenDesktop URL in the form "http://<server>/Citrix/PNAgent/config.xml".
Example: if you enter "188.8.131.52" the Receiver will use the URL " ".
Entering the protocol and the IP Address will complete the URL with the XenDesktop form using the protocol and the IP Address entered.
Example: if you enter " " the Receiver will use the URL " ".
Entering more characters in the field than protocol and IP Address will use the URL as entered. Pay attention to eventually errors.
Example: if you enter " " the Receiver will use the URL " " (this example URL is valid for a VDI-in-a-Box server).
