New Citrix Landing Page Arrives May 21, 2014


Citrix, the application that allows remote access to a limited set of applications—like Advance, Stromberg, EMS, and Argos—is getting a new look.

ITS is upgrading the Citrix server and with it comes a new look that includes many designs elements from the Macalester Web site. Access to applications through Citrix will remain the same. Downloading and installing Citrix Receiver will be necessary to connect to the Citrix server after the upgrade. Visiting the Citrix login page anytime after the upgrade should prompt you to download and install Citrix Receiver, so you don’t have to do anything until after the upgrade.

Follow these steps to use the new Citrix anytime on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 to download Citrix Receiver:
