nickc created the topic: SFConnect not connecting
I've sent a support email, but I thought I'd try here as well in case I'm just missing something. I am working on a POC to test storage providers and using LoginVSI to test the capactiy. I have a very simple setup; 1 XenDesktop Controller, 1 StoreFront/license server, 1 VSI server, plus a launcher (actually 25, but the other 24 have not been added to keep it simple for now).

I'm trying to launch 1 session just to make sure it's all set up OK. SFConnect just sits there saying connect to to URL and then eventually it appears to timeout. I can launch a desktop from the same machine via the IE using the same URL, but with "web" added to the storename.

I've looked at this, www.loginvsi.com/blog/335-common-citrix-...-in-a-login-vsi-test , but nothing there points at my issue. I have the same setup in Hyper-V on my Win10 machine and it works perfectly (using XenApp not XenDesktop, but still StoreFront connector) - the VSIMax there is 9 :) Anyone any ideas?

Thanks to some input from Brian from LoginVSI, the solution to my previous post (which I can't reply to for some reason) www.loginvsi.com/forum/login-vsi-v4/1418...nnect-not-connecting - is the proxy...I tried setting the proxy on the command line and that did not work. I got the same thing; hanging at connecting, then timing out. Then I saw the /noproxy switch and that worked. I knew it would be soemthing simple...other than myself!

Thanks for the quick "fix" :)

What our customers are saying

Michael Cooper - Citrix

"We use Login VSI as a level set. If we are looking at a system that we are putting on brand new hardware or that we are putting in the cloud, we may see those environments completely differently but the end result is: is the user going to have a good solid happy user experience? And what Login VSI provides us on all three platforms is fairly consistent apples-to-apples comparison: is the user happy?"

Michael Cooper, Director of Solutions Architecture and Global Alliances at Citrix Systems

Paul Bray - Computacenter

"We needed a robust method of evaluating multiple different platforms in a systematic and consistent manner. We chose Login VSI as it is the best of breed and met all of our requirements.
