Access Gateway – Gateway Authentication Failed when connecting from an Android

At this time, I do not have an Android device. 😦 Honestly, I haven’t had an iPhone too terribly long but whatever. I wanted an Android device to test my Access Gateway last week and found that there is an Android emulator that will run on Windows 7 64-bit edition. It worked great and you can find out more using the links below:

Be patient when booting it up, it may take a few minutes but beyond that, I was pleased with its performance.

The first time I tried to connect, I received a “Gateway Authentication Failed” error message:

After a bit of troubleshooting, I changed the Citrix Receiver configuration as shown below. So even though I was connecting to a Standard Edition Access Gateway, I had to set the Citrix Receiver to Enterprise Edition in order to connect and launch applications.
