I was just with a client and needed a tool to launch a direct ICA connection to a server.  I knew such a Citrix tool existed, but for the life of me I couldn’t remember the name of it.  My Google skills also somewhat deserted me at the time and it was only later that I found the correct CTX article.

I was also under the impression that Nick Holmquist had stopped development on his xConnect tool which did a similar job.  Nick kindly pointed me to the correct Citrix Tool which is Citrix Quick Launch and told me that in fact he has not stopped developing his xConnect tool (think of it as mstsc for ICA).  You can find the beta download for his tool at tekhelix.
