Accessing Citrix Apps From Linux

Accessing Citrix Based Remote Application from Windows Server from linux computer

Follow the instruction on your screen.

This is your terminal windows screen

Type the following under # /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr

Citrix ICA Client Screen

NETWORK SETTING USIN IP – Your IP Number will be provided to you by your system Administrator only.

On the following screen click on CONNECT icon

You can adjust your screen setting from Option/Setting/ preference menu and then windows to select screen size.

Login Using your user name and password as you normally do @work

Your Screen To Access Application is now ready

This is Intranet Browser

After you are done with your work, close all opened application, and then click on Start. Logoff and then yes.


If you receive Security Certificate Error message 61 when you try to accesses your remote applications, please follow these steps, assuming you have installed the client into the default location:

1. Navigate to the following directory /usr/lib/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts
2. Copy the certificates that Firefox uses into the directory above sudo cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* ./

Open Terminal screen and logon using root password. Here I had to open each directory to locate the CACERTS directory.

wkumsa@ubuntu:~$ su
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa# ls
Desktop ICAClient
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa# cd ICAClient
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa/ICAClient# ls
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa/ICAClient# cd linuxx86
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa/ICAClient/linuxx86# ls

CHARICONV.DLL install.txt Npica readme.txt VDSPMIKE.DL
L config keyboard setupwfc wfcmgr
desktop keystore TW1.DLL wfica
eula.txt PDCRYPT1.DLL util

root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa/ICAClient/linuxx86# cd keystore
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa/ICAClient/linuxx86/keystore# ls
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa/ICAClient/linuxx86/keystore# cd cacerts
root@ubuntu:/home/wkumsa/ICAClient/linuxx86/keystore/cacerts# cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/* ./

Now you can try to access your remote application.
