Mac OSX connecting to Citrix Metafram XP on W2K Server

I have two Mac's on a primarily Windows network. One recently had a drive go bad and was reloaded. We use the ICA client for these users to connect to an application on a Citrix server. I have downloaded the latest client, set the configuration identical to the working one. When I launch Citrix I get a Citrix window that says "Connection status: connected to 192.168.100.5", which is the Citrix server. The application window never opens, and on the Citrix server does not show the client connected. If the user on the other one launches the application, the window opens and the Citrix server shows the user connected and what application they are running. I have spent several hours comparing the two machines, and even re-downloaded the client from Citrix. Has anyone had a similar problem?

Rbarnhard,

Try trashing the ICA client preferences.  They are in ~/Library/Preferences/Citrix ICA Clients.  You can trashed the whole folder (Citrix ICA Client).

After that, then try creating/make a new connection.

Good luck.

I still have the same problem. I trashed the folder and recreated the connection. The Citrix screen still sits there and says connected.

We use Citrix in our office.  I never encounter any serious problem.  If citrix client are acting up, deleting preferences will usually do the trick.

You can try to create a new user on that machine, and then run Citrix client from that new user.

(have you verify/repair the permission?)  How did you 'reload' when the disk went bad? Reinstall from OS Restore or pulling everything from a backup?

Good luck.
