Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

I guess most of us dealing with Citrix Issues on a regular basis have just come to accept the fact that Citrix just doesn't allow the Google Bots access to their systems, and certainly not the Support Knowledgebase, and as a concequence I do tend to save a lot of their information locally and mine it with Google Desktop.

Chatting to one of the Citrix Support staff yesterday it would appear that there may be a change on the way.

In the past iteration of the Citrix Forum it was quite clear that it was being hosted on a Notes back end, although I'm not sure what it's running on now, but I think we could all safely assume that it's a version of the MSAM side of things. After all it could be pretty embaressing if you don't use your own offering.

Now the reason I bring this up is that apperently there were (still is?) two reasons for the Google Bots being blocked, one was legal and the other apperently was technical. It would appear that the technical issue now has an answer and the only remaining issue is now the legal side.

Meantime, don't hold your breath.......    ;-)
