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…

Deprecated in this Release
– MarkDown command for Server parameter as well as the “Mark Server Down…” selection in the Provisioning Services Console.

Hi, I had a lot to do the last couple of weeks, so there was not much time for new posts.

Right now I’m in San Francisco and attend the Citrix Synergy. It’s a great event with lots of new stuff and fantastic sessions. Today Citrix announced the tech preview release of the XenClient. I saw some demonstrations and they were really cool.
You can now try XenClient Express yourself. Your Laptop must meet some technical specifications and platform requirements, check this out first.

In the next days I will tell you some more interesting things from Citrix Synergy, so come around.
