HTTP Status 403 Error on Citrix Access Gateway 5.0.4 VPX Logon Point

Citrix_Logo_

I was messing with logon points on Citrix Access Gateway 5.0.4 VPX trying to add secondary authentication pointing to SafeNet (RADIUS) and came across the following error:

HTTP_Status_403_Error_on_Citrix_Access_Gateway_5.0.4_VPX_Logon_Point_1

Solution was relatively straight forward but not immediately obvious as I was able to login fine just to be met by the error above. It turns out when I was creating the test logon point I forgot to set the homepage address under Website Configuration:

HTTP_Status_403_Error_on_Citrix_Access_Gateway_5.0.4_VPX_Logon_Point_2

That should sort it.

Side note – if you’re using CAG 5.0.4 VPX and Radius authentication for your 2FA there is a bug that displays password field twice i.e you get Username, Password and Password again.. Second password field is actually your passcode – in my case SafeNet.

HTTP_Status_403_Error_on_Citrix_Access_Gateway_5.0.4_VPX_Logon_Point_3

There is no fix for this problem at present and hopefully it will be fixed in 5.0.5.
