Remote applications

Use this policy to configure the client's handling of remote applications.

When enabled, this policy uses the list in the "Application" box to determine which published applications can be directly launched by the client.

You can request that remote applications share sessions (run in a single ICA connection). This provides a better user experience, but is sometimes not desirable. The session sharing feature can be disabled by clearing the "Session sharing" check box.

Published applications are denoted by a # in front of the application name. Omitting the # symbol attempts to launch a particular program or desktop. A computer running Citrix XenApp will not allow this by default, and rejects the connection, displaying: "You do not have access to this session."

Session sharing is controlled by the SessionSharingKey that prevents applications launched from different Web Interface servers from sharing sessions. In addition, applications with different graphics or security settings are prevented from sharing sessions.
