Cannot connect to the Citrix metaframe server. There is no Citrix metaframe server configured on the specified address.
Posted on 2006-07-20
I have setup a test Presentation Server 4.0 (running everything including IIS) on our network. I am tiring to get the web interface to work. I can connect and run it on the LAN and from home via our VPN (using the internal IP address of the server)
I have opened the following ports on my PIX 515e firewall: 80 and the citrix-ica - 1494 I think.
When I try to connect I am presented with a login box and can see the Citrix web interface server with my applications available. However, when I try to launch the application, I get "Cannot connect to the Citrix metaframe server. There is no Citrix metaframe server configured on the specified address"
I am guessing that I need to set up the server to it understands the PIX and NAT (PAT) headers from the outside interface. I have found in the presentation server admin under the web interface under the secure client admin I can access routes where I put the external (live internet) address with a mask of 255.255.255.255 for both translated and alternate. Under firewall translations I have put the internal and external addresses with port 80. And nothing under secure gateway.
I am guessing this is a simple question for someone who knows Citrix. I have not seen Citrix for over 6+ years so I am a noob.
Thanks in advance for any help!
