StoreFront 3.5 Installation

Installing Citrix StoreFront 3.5

Before you start installing StoreFront 3.5, I recommend that you request a certificate for your StoreFront Site and the Windows 2012R2 OS is patched and up to date. It’s pretty simple process to request a certificate and bind it to the IIS site. Setting up your StoreFront site securely and correctly the first time will help reduce problems in the future.

I’ve seen several StoreFront implementations with sites configured without SSL and there are usually some problems that pop up because of it.

Citrix recommends using HTTPS in production environments and Receiver 3.1 and later, only secure (HTTPS) stores are allowed by default. If you want to use HTTP you need to apply registry key changes to the clients. Its easier to just apply a certificate to a couple servers than relying on group policy preferences or a script to apply registry key changes to everyone’s workstation.
