Caffeine for Citrix Receiver! by Andrew Morgan

Andrew Morgan has created yet another cool tool from his “pen” and launched it :).

Often when using the XenApp, XenDesktop or even Citrix VDI in a Box, double prompting for passwords from windows devices is both common and a pain in the backside.  When you’re local workstation locks out you need to re input your workstation password, then re input your password again in the remote session… irritating and unnecessary.

From a security perspective its necessary to configure a secure screensaver on their desktop in the datacenter to ensure any connecting device receives a password prompt when the user is idle a certain amount of time, but it can be a management nightmare to exclude users from receiving double password prompts from managed windows devices.
