I hope I don’t need to explain that this is for testing/evaluating purposes only and is not at all supported by Citrix in any way. You would have to be pretty creative to think of a network testing solution to get this working in a VMware Workstation setup. Basically you would need two of these VPX appliances and figure out how to flow the data between the two Citrix Branch Repeaters with on one end Citrix XenApp Servers or XenDesktop machines and some sort of client on the other.
But if you want get more acquainted with the Citrix Branch Repeater command line interface or the GUI this is a nice way of doing that.
In this guide I will only show how to get a working Citrix Branch Repeater VPX into VMware Workstation VM.
Materials used for this:
- Citrix Branch Repeater VPX 6.0.5;
- VMware OVF Tool 2.1.0;
- VMware Workstation 8;
Download Citrix Branch Repeater VPX 6.0.5 from the Citrix download section on www.citrix.com, this requires an active MyCitrix login account.
