Citrix Receiver, connection in progress, takes long or is slow.

Hi,

Experiencing the same problem? Setting up a connection to a published app or desktop takes a while? (20 to 60 sec) You might have Citrix Session Reliability configured but the (Windows) Firewall blocks port 2598/TCP resulting in a session over port 1494/TCP. It will take a while before the detection occurs, that’s what is causing the delay.

Resolution, in my order of preferences:

1) Open up port 2598/TCP (to enable Session Reliability for XenApp or XenDesktop VDI)

OR

2) Disable Citrix Session Reliability by GPO (So it is not going to try to setup the connection)
Greeting,

 

Ronny.
