Accessing files on the XenApp Server
How to access files on the XenApp server while using a software in Citrix Receiver.
XenApp allows you to remotely access a list of Windows applications that are also available in the CAE lab machines. For a complete list of software available through XenApp, please refer to this link: http://www.cae.wisc.edu/software/ . While using the software on XenApp, you also have the ability to save files on that server or in your CAE account. In some cases, the class you are taking might upload files to use on the XenApp server, which you will not be able to access via your CAE account. The following information covers the steps necessary to access files on the XenApp server versus the files in your CAE account.
If you would like to access the files on the XenApp server (1) or in your CAE account (2), you must be logged on to the XenApp server first, whether through the web version (light) or through installed Citrix Receiver (full).
