10.3: Change Citrix connection method to locate server Apps
My office runs a Citrix farm. Of course, they do not support Macs. My Citrix admin is a Mac user and has been trying to help, but I was still stuck. I run Panther and the Citrix client default connection type is TCP/HTTP. This gives a "Cannot locate server" error, even though I have good DNS.

I played around with the connection type and changed it to just TCP, and bam, it worked. I now can run Citirx client on Panther without running Virtual PC. Cool!

This hint is not just limited to Panther. I used Citrix at work under Jaguar with no problems.

In attempting to set up the Citrix client on my 10.2.8, I used the IP the company tech support gave me. They had NO experience with the Mac version of the client, but did suggest that I change the connect type to TCP/IP instead of TCP/IP+HTTP. Either way, no luck: unable to find server. Rats.

As an off topic, this isn't just liimited to the Mac. I was trying to connect my iBook to our farm. At that tie there were a few systems in my department (Windows 98 through XP) that had problems connecting (with no help from the network/Citrix admin). For some reason I tried TCP on the Mac client and was able to connect. I turned around and tried this on the non-connecting workstations and huzzah they worked.
