Firewall and CITRIX Software
NOTE! The Citrix-software has been updated to a newer version 15.3.2012, check the instructions!
A Citrix XenApp remote access server farm has been set up in order to access programs within the firewall (including search engines for contact information and the helpdesk) and to be able to access the libraries databases. These services are available by installing the free Citrix Receiver, the program is supported by several operating systems, browsers and applications.
Access the service from http://citrix.puv.fi
Log onto the service with your own VAMK username and password.
The Citrix-session has an automatic time-out which disconnects an open session after 30 minutes of inactivity. By signing in within 5 minutes you can continue working without data loss. The same procedure applies if the network connection is disconnected for some reason.
Older Citrix client programs do largely work but we highly recommend that you install the new Citrix Receiver according to the instructions.
