    Smoothwall SSL login doesn't work with TS/Citrix

    We have been using SSL login with Smoothwall on our XP clients as we like the students to login to the internet, we've come across an issue that it doesn't work with Citrix/Terminal Server. The first person to login from the box receives the SSL login page but subsequent users don't get the page they are automatically logged in and all traffic shows as the first user to login.

    Anyone else using SSL login with TS or Citrix and have a way around this issue?

    Think Iíll open a ticket as well.

    Cheers.

    @cookie_monster: I believe that this is a known issue - Smoothie uses %computername% to track the sessions rather than checking if there is a %clientname% variable there which should be used instead.

    Oh excellent so should NTLM auth sort this? Shame that Smoothwall didn't mention this when helping us setup the box I did mention that we use Citrix

    I'll be looking into this tomorrow. I don't think this way will present the user with a logon page though will it.

    AFAIK SSL login operates at a lower level of the stack, so just operates on IPs unfortunately. I've asked the guys to take a closer look at this to see if there's another way.

    Cookie_monster - you might want to try proxy authentication (will prompt for password, but not on a webpage like SSL login) or i seem to remember there is some way in citrix to assign a unique virtual IP to each user session?

    Thanks,


    Rob.

    If I get time later i'm going to have a read up on proxy auth and NTLM. NTLM looks like the one to go with our desire for them to logon with SSL was so they see a web page with the AUP on not really thet they have to logon again to get the internet.

    Thanks.
