Citrix network provider order?

Jim Smith1709157654


Hi I have site which has 2 sets of published applications servers which use PVS. 


The network provider on the NIC shows 'Provider Order' with 'Citrix Client Network' as the top prioritization (on one of the sets(2012R2 servers);





One of my colleagues is suggesting that raising the priority of the 'Microsoft Windows Network' option to the top ((placing it above Microsoft Remote Desktop Session Host Server' and 'Citrix Client Network' would enable better performance?


I am not convinced but am also not clear. Does anyone know what the network provider orders relate to exactly and how these should be ordered here. (of note the other set of RDSH servers(2016 servers)) have 'Microsoft Windows Network' already as top of this list.  


Many Thanks

I'd also like to know that. I've installed a new environment and my order is totally different.

In my logical opinion performance wise this should be:


Citrix SSO (As stated in the Citrix docs for passthrough, else I would place it last)

MS Windows Network


Citrix Client Network

Web Client


I also cannot find a definitive answer for this question.
