Published Application Manager also includes two wizards that let you create the ICA files and HTML pages you can place on your Web server for users to visit to initiate ICA sessions. After publishing an application, use the Write ICA File wizard to create an ICA file for the application.
How to Create an ICA File
The following ICA session attributes are stored in ICA files:
The address of the Citrix server or the name of the published application definition to run
The user name, password, and domain name to use when connecting to the Citrix server
The encryption level to use when connecting to the Citrix server
The size and color depth of the application window when launched from a Web page, expressed in pixels or as a percentage of the window size
NOTE: Applications embedded in Web pages are sized according to the height and width tags specified in the Web page. The size specifications in the ICA file are ignored.
To create an ICA file
Start Published Application Manager. (On the MetaFrame desktop, click Start, point to Programs, MetaFrame Tools, and then click Published Application Manager.)
In Published Application Manager's main window, select an entry in the list of published applications.
In the Application menu, click Write ICA File, or right-click the published application and select Write ICA File.
Follow the directions on screen. When prompted, save the ICA file to some location on the Web root of your Web server.
You can test ICA files on any system on which you have installed one of the ICA Windows Web Clients and that can access the Citrix server using TCP/IP. Copy the ICA file to that computer and then double-click it in File Manager or Windows Explorer.
See the online Help for Published Application Manager for more information about the Write ICA File wizard.
