The purpose of the Citrix Remote Access Gateway is to provide a secure method by which students and
teachers can connect to the district resources while not at school. This provides a way to access documents left
on the H drive or to create files on a network drive. This will also be a secure method of providing students
access to the FCSS network once school-wide wireless is fully installed in all schools so students will be able to
bring their own computing devices to school.
Currently all staff and students have the ability to access the Citrix Remote Access Portal from home. Access is
not guaranteed due to the variables which we have no control over on individual home computers. Some users
may not be successful depending on the configuration and security settings which are in place on a home
computer.
Begin by logging on using the same username and password which you use to access the school system
computers.
The next page provides access to the applications which are currently available through the Citrix Gateway.
Exact installation procedures will vary depending on the operating system, internet browser, and settings that
you are using. A Citrix client install is required.
The installation may occur automatically or you may have to temporarily turn off pop-up blockers or look for
the notification below the address bar as seen below.
You should click on the notification for options and then either Install ActiveX Control or Download File.
Follow the prompts to complete the client installation.

Citrix has been configured so that data transfers can occur only in one direction so that a
user can copy a file from their H drive to the local computer’s hard drive, but not from
their local computer to the H drive.
To access your H drive, click on “Home\Personal Folder” in the right window
pane.
Clicking on Home\Personal Folder will open a window similar to the example below. This will give you
access to the network H drive.
Hold the cursor over the file to download and click on the arrow and wait for the menu to appear (be patient).
Once the menu appears click on the download option.
Choose open. Once you have finished working on the document you will need to navigate to the location to
which you wish to save the file (it cannot be saved back to your H drive from here, so you will need to either
save it to your computer OR save it to a portable device to bring it back to school.
