The Citrix Web Site Wizard

The Web Site Wizard (WSW) is a 32-bit Windows application that Citrix provides to allow administrators to quickly develop a custom NFuse Web site. The setup program is called NfuseWizard.exe and can either be found on the NFuse CD or downloaded directly from Citrix. Once installed, the program can be found in the Programs\Citrix\NFuse folder under the Start menu.

I will use this tool to develop my initial Web page, which I can then customize as necessary for my environment. The wizard walks you through eight steps to create this Web site. When running the wizard, I have selected the default options, with the following exceptions:

  • On the second page, I make sure that both the Override Default Citrix Server and Enable SSL options are disabled. I will demonstrate configuring the SSL relay in the third article in this series, “Citrix NFuse 1.5: Part 3 - Security.

  • On page 4, I select Active Server Pages (ASP) for IIS. Although the Citrix HTML extensions are easy to use, ASP provides much more flexibility in how you can customize your Web site.

  • On page 5, I select the options as shown in Figure 6. Notice that I have deselected the Enable Ticketing option. Because none of my MetaFrame servers have FR1 activated, the XML Service on those servers will not support ticketing. I will talk more about adding ticketing support in ““Citrix NFuse 1.5: Part 3 – Security.

  • On the final page, I make sure to select a folder located under wwwroot. My folder name for this example will be NoisyRiverNFuse.

When your new Web site is created, you can test it by simply pointing your browser to the appropriate folder. For example, mine would be http://uranium/NoisyRiverNFuse. Figure 6 shows the generated logon page and the resulting application list page—not very fancy, but it's a start.

If you currently have an older version of the ICA client (or do not have any client installed), you will be presented with a Web dialog box suggesting that you upgrade to the latest version of the appropriate client for your desktop operating system. The appropriate installation files are drawn from the NfuseClient directory created during the installation of the NFuse Java objects. I will look in detail at the server-side scripts that manage the client detection and installation in “Citrix NFuse 1.5: Part 2 – The Role of the ICA Client.
