Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between CTXConnector.exe and SFConnect.exe, since both can be used for Citrix XenDesktop

Hi Chan,

SFConnect only works on Storefront, CTXConnect only works on the Web Interface (5.4 and below) and Netscaler.

CTXConnect using Internet Explorer to log in etc., while SFConnect uses the API from Storefront, so/thus there is no need to start a web browser. SFConnect is also more robust than CTXConnect.

normally general rule:
use Citrix WI? Then you must use CTXConnect.
use Storefront? Then you must use SFConnect.

Hope this makes sense.
