Technical - Citrix Access

When I ordered the Fire, I thought that I might have a 40% chance of accessing my citrix desktop at work remotely.

Turns out to be a 100% chance.

The citrix application would be pretty specialized to those with Citrix desktops (obviously). The Citrix desktop enables you to access email, documents and applications you use on your work PC.

I went to to download the android client, but that didn't do anything for me.

Then I found the Citrix Receiver app through the available apps for the Fire and this was what I needed. It works perfectly.

You'll need to provide the following information to the app:

Address: (url to connect to)
User name
Domain name

Our network guys have already documented this for apple users connecting and the same information applies to the Fire.

Note: I do experience some intermittent "freezes" of my desktop during citrix access.
