I am trying to use the SFConnect utility to launch some virtual desktop sessions. We use XenDesktop 7.0. the StoreFront server it setup to use http (not https) at the moment.

This is the output:
[2013-11-14 14:31:09] Connecting to URL cscxdsbst001.thebeast.local/Citrix/thebeast
[2013-11-14 14:31:09] Got "unauthorized" response, trying to authenticate
[2013-11-14 14:31:09] Getting token for http://cscxdsbst001/Citrix/TheBeast/resources/v2
[2013-11-14 14:31:09] Getting token for http://cscxdsbst001/Citrix/Authentication/auth/v1/token
[2013-11-14 14:31:09] Using protocol ExplicitForms
[2013-11-14 14:31:09] Authenticating user credentials
Error gathering resources
Error getting authentication token for resources

Note that this works fine with our other XenDesktop 7.1 environment (which is using https). Is SFConnect suppose to work with plain http to communication to the StoreFront?

Actually, can you replace thebeast in your url with the case sensitive TheBeast?

This is the command lilne:
Z:\LoginVSI407\SFConnect.exe /url "{url}" /user "{user}" /password "{password}" /resource "{desktop}" /display absolute /displayabsolute 800x600

This is the .session entry that I was using (does not work):
Win7 Dev 64,thebeast.local,thebeast.local\x-squevill,xxxxxx, cscxdsbst001.thebeast.local/Citrix/thebeast


This is the .session entry that works:
Win7 Dev 64,thebeast.local,thebeast.local\x-squevill,xxxxxx, cscxdsbst001.thebeast.local/Citrix/TheBeast

I have also enabled https on my StoreFront and it works with https as well.

* I have change the password to protect the innocent.

Thanks for your suggestion!!!

Now, If I could only get the /display options to work, I'd be all set.
