October 27, 2010 1 comment

Today Citrix released CAG 5.0 and the new Access Controller Software (formerly known as Advanced Access Control). You can download the VPX for XenServer/VMWare, the Access Controller for Windows 2008/2008 R2 and an ISO image/upgrade image for the model 2010 hardware appliance here (MyCitrix account required).

In my post “Access Gateway 5.0 a deeper look Part 1” I already informed you about the new features and the basic configuration of the CAG, part 2 is coming soon, it’s about configuring the CAG for remote access. Part 3 will concentrate on the Access Controller, so stay tuned…

Citrix Access Gateway 5.0 and new AAC Server coming soon

August 31, 2010 Leave a comment

I heard about a new Access Gateway these days, there is also a beta test for some users going on, I can’t tell you much about it, but I think CAG 5.0 will be released soon. In Q4 there will also be a new Advanced Access Control Server. It’s really time for an update, installing AAC 4.5 with Hotfix 5 on Windows 2003 x86 is not up to date… I’m looking forward to the new releases and I will keep you informed.

Citrix released Access Gateway VPX

February 7, 2010 Leave a comment

I already told you about running the Access Gateway on a XenServer or VMWare ESX host. Now Citrix officially released a virtual appliance based on the CAG 4.6.2, it has the same features and characteristics.

This virtual appliance is for XenServer only, Hyper-V and ESX are not supported yet, but this could change in a couple of weeks…

Citrix also changed the license, new customers of the Access Gateway VPX now get a new Access Gateway Platform License with one year of subscription. Connections made through CAG to XenApp hosted apps or XenDesktop are now supported with a single license.
The Universal Platform License is also getting cheaper. You can change your CAG Standard licence (CCU) to the new license for free.
