This chapter contains an example of a basic Fudo PAM configuration, to monitor direct ICA protocol connections.



The following description assumes that the system has been already initiated. For more information on the initiation procedure refer to the System initiation topic.



Adding a server

Server is a definition of the IT infrastructure resource, which can be accessed over one of the specified protocols.

  1. Select Management > Servers.
  2. Click Add.
  1. Provide essential configuration parameters:
Parameter Value
Name ica_server
Blocked fail
Protocol ICA
Description fail
Granted users fail
Destination host  
Port 1494
Use TLS fail
  1. Click Save.

Adding a listener

Listener determines server connection mode (proxy, gateway, transparent, bastion) as well as its specifics.

  1. Select Management > Listeners.
  2. Click Add.
  1. Provide essential configuration parameters:
Parameter Value
Name ica_listener
Blocked fail
Protocol ICA
Granted users fail
Mode proxy
Local address
Port 2494
Use TLS fail
  1. Click Save.

Adding an account

Account defines the privileged account existing on the monitored server. It specifies the actual login credentials, user authentication mode: anonymous (without user authentication), regular (with login credentials substitution) or forward (with login and password forwarding); password changing policy as well as the password changer itself.

  1. Select Management > Accounts.
  2. Click Add.
  1. Provide essential configuration parameters:
Parameter Value
Name admin_ica_server
Blocked fail
Type regular
Session recording all
OCR sessions fail
Delete session data after 61 days
Granted users fail
Server ica_server
Domain fail
Login citrixuser
Replace secret with password
Password password
Repeat password password
Password change policy Static, without restrictions
Password changer  
Password changer none
Privileged user fail
Privileged user password fail
  1. Click Save.

Adding a user

User defines a subject entitled to connect to servers within monitored IT infrastructure. Detailed object definition (i.e. unique login and domain combination, full name, email address etc.) enables precise accountability of user actions when login and password are substituted with a shared account login credentials.

  1. Select Management > Users.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Provide essential user information:
Parameter Value
Login john_smith
Fudo domain fail
Blocked fail
Account validity Indefinite
Role user
Preferred language English
Safes fail
Full name John Smith
Email john@smith.com
Organization fail
Phone fail
AD Domain fail
LDAP Base fail
Granted users fail
Authentication failures fail
Enforce static password complexity fail
Type Password
Password john
Repeat password john
  1. Click Save.

Defining a safe

Safe directly regulates user access to monitored servers. It specifies available protocols’ features, policies and other details concerning users and servers relations.

  1. Select Management > Safes.
  2. Click Add.
  1. Provide essential configuration parameters:
Parameter Value
Name ica_safe
Blocked fail
Login reason fail
Notifications fail
Policies fail
Users john_smith
Protocol functionality  
RDP fail
SSH fail
VNC fail
admin_ica_server ica_listener
  1. Click Save.


In case of TLS encrypted connections, Fudo returns an .ica configuration file to the Citrix client, which has the FQDN server address (Address) set to the common name defined in the TLS certificate.

Creating .ica file with connection parameters

Direct connection with remote server over ICA protocol requires preparing a connection configuration file. This file specifies the listener used to connect to the remote host.


Refer to ICA configuration file topic for details on the configuration file.

  1. Create configuration file containing the following:

  1. Save the file with .ica extension.

Connecting to remote resource

  1. Double-click the connection configuration file to launch ICA protocol client software.
  2. Proceed with using the service.

Viewing user session

  1. Open a web browser and go to the Fudo PAM administration page.
  2. Enter user login and password to log in to Fudo PAM administration panel.
  1. Select Management > Sessions.
  2. Find John Smith’s session and click i.
