Remote Connections (Citrix)

Introduction

Citrix is a service that enables the use of Windows applications from a variety of platforms without needing to install the application locally. The application's computing and GPU needs are handled by EWS-hosted servers.  Citrix offers the ability to open files in an EWS home directory, as well as files on the computer you are connecting from.
