hi Kashish

With Cisco WAAS 4.5.1 capabilities work  "out-of-the-box", with no configuration needed within Citrix XenDesktop  servers, or at the clients, to enable optimization of Citrix traffic. In  contrast, earlier versions of Cisco WAAS required administrative  actions to disable native ICA encryption and compression  perform optimization.

please review the following:

However 4.5.1 was put on "New Product Hold" - i.e. you can't get hold of it. So 5.0.3 and 5.1.1 are the first usable versions that support Citrix Acceleration.
