Impersonate other browsers with Chrome

Posted on February 16th, 2012

When testing access scenarios it is useful to impersonate other browers such as Safari or Mobile Safari from a Windows PC. This can be done with Chrome using the following syntax when launching the app. This example impersonates the mobile safari browser on an iPhone.

chrome.exe –user-agent=”Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1A543 Safari/419.3″

There are many “user-agent” strings that can be added to this syntax and a google search should discover the correct one required.

This is particularly useful if testing Netscaler configurations where different web pages appear for different browser types.

Customize logos on Citrix Web Interface 5.x

Posted on July 13th, 2010

This was done on Citrix Web Interface 5.2.0 but should work on any 5.x version

White theme

This is detailed in several places but most notably here: CTX119509

This gives the default logon screen in white.

Identify the images used

Here is a screen shot of the default view and list of the associated images & resolutions

There are 3 main images:

Image Filename Dimensions CAG Ent filename
1 CitrixLogoHeader.gif 265 x 62 CtxHeader01.bmp
2 HeaderBlack.gif 1175.62 CtxHeader02.bmp
3 CitrixWatermark.gif 115 x 62 CitrixWatermark.gif

These are similar, but not the same, as the images for the Citrix Access Gateway Enterprise. The similar names are also listed. I have found it best to simply use the same images for both sites but just saved as different filetypes.

There is also the one moment please screen to consider

Image Filename Dimensions CAG Ent filename
4 ProgressWindow.gif


As original ProgressWindow.gif


Simply open the ProgressWindow images and change the colour

File Locations

The Images are located in

..\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\{site name}\media

Simply copy the new images to this location and overwrite the old ones.

There are other ways to ammend these image details, by selecting the web site appearance options within the Web Interface console, but I find it easier and quicker to just overwrite the files.

Just make sure you keep the same dimensions for each image as this means you don’t need to edit any other files.
