Default Citrix Receiver/ICA client
anyone know a way for me to access a Citrix environment?
I kinda need to administrate it so it be useful if I can access it............


Citrix doesn't seem to make a Citrix client for BSD but although I can get to it via RDP,
using RDP will keep a RDP session locked and we don't have much licenses for Terminal Server,
so every session has to be used exclusively to access the servers for specific tasks that can't be done using ICA (for which ever reason, usually our configuration).

all I need is to at least use the ICA protocol, so I don't need things like seamless integration (usually not that seamless anyway...)

Some one else had a blog on this:

See if what they did works for you.

that siad I need a older version.
but I need version 11, or some kind of plugin for KRDC or such.

I tried version 10 under linux once, but it won't connect.
since it's the same program then, it probably won't connect here either.
and I actually rater not use the official client.
(because of some personal problems with Citrix I'd rater not go into detail about)

anyone?

there does seem to be a port for the citrix client.
(net/citrix_ica)

but that sais I have to create "${LINUXBASE}/dev" but where is `linux base`?
according to pkg-descr I risk crashing the system it I don't crate that.

I just came to think of it, I don't need v11, but I do need at least v10.1, the package from the link is 10.0, but the port is for v10.6 (so that should work)



I also don't get this:
Code:
If your Citrix server does not have one of the supplied root-certificates,
you can copy the certificate to /usr/ports/distfiles and add the
following line to your /etc/make.conf:

        ICA_CERTS=mycert.crt

It will then automatically be installed and removed with the normal
FreeBSD package tools.

WWW: http://www.citrix.com/English/ps2/products/product.asp?contentID=186
where are the provided certificates then?


I still rather not use the official client, but I'm starting to fear I don't have a choice....

I would make a PBI of this, but its rather weird with its licensing,
plus the fact they want your cert used at compile-time, which prevents a
binary package working of course

The ${LINUXBASE}/dev directory would need to be created at
/compat/linux/dev BTW

There is a port for ver 11, /usr/ports/net/citrix_xenapp -- See the following for installation:

http://wiki.freebsd.org/ThomasAbthorpe/CitrixOnFreeBSD/

Note you will need to manually download the client, rename and copy to citrix_xenapp-linuxx86-11.100.158406.tar.gz -- but the port spells this out.

It installs to /usr/local/ICAClient and wfcmgr seems to open fine, so the port seems to take care of the linux bits.

My problem is that I access citrix through a web interface and the citrix install doesn't integrate itself into KDE like it does in linux. When I try to manually use wfica, i get the following error which after much searching around I haven't figured out:

Code:
Warning: locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged
Warning: Unable to load any usable ISO8859 font
Error: Aborting: no font found

Have you tried the java client? I have the java client working well on Xubuntu 10.4 with the Seamonkey browser. I couldn't get it working on the BSD's because I kept getting messages that I hadn't chosen to trust a certain root certificate. I had that problem on earlier Linux versions, so I think it may have to do with whether the certificates are up-to-date in Java (I tried adding the certificates to the browser's certificates, but it didn't help.)

Update: I just looked at www.freshports.org for information on java ports. The ca certs were updated for openjdk6 in May; but the the ca certs haven't been updated in diablo-jdk16 since December. Sadly, the java plugin provided by icedtea6-stubs uses diablo instead of openjdk, even though the icedtea6-stubs description file mentions openjdk.

Update 2: The port for diablo-jdk16 was updated yesterday to include the latest root certificates. (Thank you, Greg Lewis!)
A correction: icedtea6-stubs is used for compiling openjdk. It does not provide a browser plugin.

I'm kind of new around here, but I've searched the forums and could not find anything, so here goes:

After installing the citrix_xenapp (citrix_xenapp-11.100.158406) package everything seems to be working fine, so the application opens I can configure the citrix server and aplication, but when I try to open the application a new window opens, I log on to the citrix server and sudently the window disappears. I have also tried to run the wfcmgr as root, but the same thing happens.

The only thing that appears is:
Warning: locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged

but I do not think this has any impact.

Did anyone else had this issue ?

p.s.: The citrix server is rather old and has not been updated is some time, also I do not have access to the citrix logs.
