I am pleased to announce that Access Gateway 4.6.1, Standard Edition was released today. This release of Access Gateway Standard Edition supports the following:

  • Access Gateway Plug-in support for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Access Gateway Plug-in support for Microsoft Windows Vista 64-bit
  • Access Gateway Plug-in for Mac OS X
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

The following new features are included in 4.6.1:

Access Gateway Plug-in and Citrix Receiver Integraton
Access Gateway Standard Edition supports Citrix Receiver, Citrix Merchandising Server, and Dazzle, which are components of the Citrix Delivery Center. Citrix Receiver, Citrix Merchandising Server, and Dazzle streamline the installation and management of application delivery to user desktops. For more information, see Integrating the Access Gateway Plug-in with Citrix Receiver.

Secure Ticket Authority redundancy
You can configure multiple redundant Secure Ticket Authorities (STAs) for users accessing their resources through the Access Gateway. This enables you to mitigate against the possibility of the STA becoming unavailable midway through a user’s session, preventing reconnection to the session. When redundancy is enabled, the Web Interface attempts to obtain and deliver to the Access Gateway two tickets from two different STAs. If one of the STAs cannot be contacted during a user session, the session continues uninterrupted using the second STA. To configure the STA for redundancy, you must be using Web Interface 5.2 and Access Gateway Standard Edition, Version 4.6.1. For more information about configuring the Web Interface, see Configuring Access Gateway Settings in Web Interface 5.2.

A list of fixed issues is available from this article.

Installation
In Access Gateway 4.6, Standard Edition, the operating system on the Access Gateway is updated. With this update, upgrading from earlier versions of the Access Gateway is not supported. You must perform a clean installation of Version 4.6 or 4.6.1 on the Access Gateway appliance if it is running an earlier version of the software. If Version 4.6 is installed on the appliance, you can upgrade to Version 4.6.1.
