Citrix ICA Traffic Optimization with SteelHeads
Citrix ICA traffic is usually transported on TCP port 1494. Citrix ICA traffic is transported on TCP port 2598 if Citrix session reliability is enabled. When you enable Citrix session reliability, the client tunnels its ICA traffic inside the Common Gateway Protocol (CGP) port 2598.
