Connecting through a SOCKS proxy server

To limit access into and out of your Citrix servers, configure a SOCKS proxy server to handle connections between clients and the server. You can place the proxy server on either side of the firewall, or in some situations, on both sides of the firewall. You can configure the ICA Client to connect to a Citrix server through a SOCKS proxy server.

To specify a SOCKS proxy for an ICA connection

  1. Select the name of the connection you want in the Citrix ICA Client window. Click the Properties button.
  2. Choose Connection from the Properties dialog box to display the Connection page.
  3. Check Connect Via SOCKS Proxy and type the Address (or IP number) and Port of the SOCKS Proxy Server. Click OK.

  1. Click the Option menu and choose Settings. The Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Select the Firewall Settings page.
  3. Click Connect Via SOCKS Proxy. Type the Address (or IP number) and Port of the SOCKS Proxy Server. Click OK.
