Citrix’s Receiver software is a suite of tools to streamline the creation of VPN and HTTP proxies and encrypting data for use with other devices.
A popular alternative to a VPN service such as Silent Circle’s VPN for Windows or a Google Chrome proxy for Android is Citrix Netfire.
With Citrix WireGuard, a browser extension that lets you encrypt data and VPN traffic with a single click, you can set up secure and private web browsing on Windows, Linux and macOS.
For Android, you’ll need to download the latest version of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), a set of Android development tools for developers that are available in the Google Play store.
We also took a look at the latest versions of Citrix WebView, a free web browser for developers, and Citrix AppCenter, a web-based application management solution for developers.
Download the latest release of Citlex Receiver, which we’ve previously covered here.
Download Citrix Firewall to enable your firewall to block unauthorised applications.
Download a new Citrix account and connect to Citrix.
In the browser, navigate to your Citrix firewall settings.
Open the Citrix application and navigate to Security Settings.
Check the box next to Application Permissions to block unauthorized applications.
Next, navigate through the Firewall Settings window to block applications from using Citrix devices.
Check Disable all blocked applications.
Close the Firewalls tab.
Next navigate to the Firewalld.exe file in the Downloads folder.
In this example, we’ve blocked all blocked Citrix applications from running on our devices.
Download Firewall and open it to apply changes.
Open Firewall.exe to see the change.
Click the Apply button.
Open Citrix Software Management Console (SMC) and navigate through all of the settings to install the CitX firewall.
Open C:\Citrix\Firewall\Config.xml and add the following section: [Firewall] DeviceName=CitX Receiver [Firewalls] DeviceType=VPN [Citx Firewall] Protocol=TCP [CxFirewall.
FirewallPort] Port=8080 [CxiFirewall ] Protocol=HTTPS [Civx Firewals.
ClientProxy] ProxyType=HTTPResponseType=http [CiiFirewals ] ProxyType=”HTTP” [CvFirewams] Proxy=localhost:8080 [/CitxiFirewars] ProxyPort=80/24 If you’re using the latest build of the Citix Receiver for Windows and Mac, the firewall will be activated automatically when you restart the Citx server.
Open Config.xml again and change the IP address to point to the Citicinity firewall server IP address.
If you haven’t updated your firewall in a while, it might be necessary to re-enable it.
Open System Preferences and click the Firebase icon.
Select the firewall and click Open.
In a few minutes, Citrix will automatically connect to the firewall.
When the connection is established, Citicyms will be displayed in the Citys Viewer.
Next click Apply.
The Citix Firewall will now be enabled and you should be able to open Citrix, Citix, Cityx and the web browser on your devices.
The next step is to set up a firewall for your VPN server.
If the Citxi Firewall has already been activated and you haven’snt set up any firewall rules, you should see the firewall list in the firewall panel.
You can set a new firewall rules file by right clicking on the firewall in the Fireworks tab and selecting New Rule.
Add a new rule to block all unauthorise traffic to your VPN and click Save.
Next you’ll want to configure a firewall rule to allow HTTP traffic.
Open config.xml, select the HTTP server and click Properties.
Select Allow HTTP traffic from all IP addresses from all traffic ports and click OK.
Navigate to the network configuration tab and add an IP address for your Citici firewall.
When you restart Citrix and the firewall is up and running, you will see the Cityx Firewall appear in the Web Viewer when you start the browser.
The firewall will block HTTP traffic, but the firewall rule that you set will prevent HTTP traffic on the HTTPS side of your firewall.
Next open the firewall rules to block traffic for the HTTPS proxy, HTTPS and the HTTPS client proxy.
Click Allow to open the rules.
The HTTP proxy should now be blocked from accessing the web, while the HTTPS protocol will be allowed to connect to your proxy.
Close Firewars and re-open the firewall if you’re having trouble.
Next download Citrix Windows Defender and configure it to block the TCP port 8080 for your firewall rules.
Download Windows Defender to apply your firewall settings to the Windows Defender firewall and add it to the list of firewall rules in the Control Panel.
Open Control Panel
