Bypass HTTPS or SSL Requirement for Citrix Receiver

For those of you doing POCs or Testing Lab, here's how to disable SSL or HTTPS requirement for Citrix Receiver.

To bypass SSL, open regedit.exe on the client workstation and go to:

For 64-bit 


For 32-bit


Create string with value: 

     ConnectionSecurtiyMode = Any

And also, go to:

For 64-bit


For 32-bit


And set the value to "A" and restart the receiver. 

This is also useful for those troubleshooting connection between Citrix Receiver and Xenapp Server. But take note though that this is not recommended for production environment since you are exposing the user's credentials in the network.
