AAC hotfix AAC450W003 and CAG hotfix 4.5.7 available

A few days ago, Citrix released the hotfixes AAC450W003 and hotfix AG2000_v457. Beside a couple of bug fixes, there are some really interesting things in these releases:

Hotfix AAC450W003 invalidates some parts of my last posting in “AAC tuning, part 3”. A couple of months ago, i asked Citrix to allow customers to change the caption of the RADIUS input box on the logon page. In my last article i showed a way to change the caption easily for RSA and SafeWord deployments and pointed out a way to change the text with a little script in case of another RADIUS solution. However this solution had some unwanted side effects and so i’m glad that Citrix came up with a solution for all deployments. The procedure described in the first section of “AAC tuning, part 3” stays valid but is now applicable for all RADIUS deployments too, given you installed hotfix AAC450W003 correctly.

Vista is now supported with AAC 4.5, but it is still beta. This means, that you are now able to check Vista clients through EPA-scans, provided by Citrix. My first tests have been successfull. CAUTION: If you use EPA-scans from EPAFactory/Accario you have to wait for an update from Accario to support AAC 4.5 HF03. This should be available around the 20th of Mai.

The list of supported AV scanner and personal firewalls has become a little longer. McAfee 8.5i, Symantec AVE 10.0, Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Trend Micro 8.0 are now officially supported at last.

The download and readme for CAG 4.5.7 can be found here: CTX117123, Hotfix AG2000_v457
