Citrix Error: Socket Operation on Non-socket

Hello ,

I upgraded to XenApp 5.0 Feature Pack 3, AMC, CSG, WI and I can browse site internally and open a application, but from outside I sometimes get a Socket Operation on Non-socket. It's not all the time and happens alot during a wireless connection. I did some research and found a fix that states I need to locate and modify default.ica and add CGPAddress= under application and I still get same error. It comes and goes so it's hard to pinpoint the cause. I've tried to install differant client ica versions, but same error. Can anyone help me figure this out?

; selected bandwidth_xxx.ica is used.

Not sure, but I think I am not using a proxy server, s those steps are a little difficult to understand. I am not sure

This very weird and I can not seem to figure out what is going on with my Citrix connections. Some will be able to connect successfully wirelessly and others are not. Same goes with hard wired connection, so it's not just wireless, which I found our over the weekend. These are the things I noticed on my logs:

Website takes long to load site.

When it finally loads it sometimes gives socet error, but not all the time, so it's very difficult to troublshoot. When I look at the error logs in Secure Gate I get these errors;

[error] SSL Library Error 47 on Citrix.myrapadocs.com:443 with peer An unclassified SSL network error occurred. (error code: error:140760FC:lib(20):func(118):reason(252))

I checked the Secure gateway settings and all seems to be good, here are my settings.

Version = 3.2.0

Computer NetBIOS Name: WINCITRIX03

Secure Gateway Global Settings
  Version = 3.2.0

    Port = 8080
    Path = /Scripts/CtxSTA.dll

    Secured = No
    Protocol = TLSv1
    Cipher suites = ALL
    Tested OK

Certificate Check
  FQDN = Citrix.myrapadocs.com
  This certificate is currently valid.



I have a feeling it's something to do with my IIS and/or CSG. I'd like to know the process from when a client hits URL to Citrix to when a application comes up.

From what I understand is that the first thing hit is the URL located on godaddys website which has my A records pointing to external public IP address which then sends to my WI server. From that point on I have no clue, can someone please help me troublshoot this issue?
