Unable to connect to Citrix Desktop/Xen App using Java plugin

I have tried version 6 and 7 of java and its exactly the same error on OSX 10.8 and 10.9 using all browsers and on Windows 7 Pro 32 and 64bit. Connection works fine using the native citrix plugin.

The error is:

The connection failed:

java.io.IOException

This is probably due to network problems

Best is to use the native Citrix plugin (receiver). But, I guess you might have a valid reason why you want to stick to Java plugin. Check this thread might help you:

Thanks for that, the issue is for the Mac clients wanting to use java to connect. But connecting via java on any platform both windows and mac no longer works so I need to get to the bottom as to why and fix it.

Thanks

Ok, have you tried the link for Mac OSX?

Moreover, is it possible to ask your client to use the native plugin instead of the Java client? With the Java client certain features provided by Citrix will be missed; moreover, I believe performance is compromised.

Well the native plugin doesn't work for any of the macs. It just says the terminal session is not supported.

Ayman BakrSenior ConsultantCommented:
Well, what Mac versions and Citrix plugin versions you used on the Macs when you get the error message " terminal session is not supported"?

Did you try the latest plugin downloadable from here?:

Yes tried the latest plug in, its OSX Mavericks though. Lets get back to the original question though of the java plugin not working for both Windows and Mac clients as this is the issue I need to resolve. Thanks for your help though.

Ok, can you provide event IDs logged on the Windows machines in order to get a more in-depth info on the issue?

Can you also post log files related to this from your Mac machines?

Ok James_22b. You are saying you have OSX Mavericks. As per my knowledge, Java 7 doesn't support this version of Mac. Have the Java provided by Apple, Java for OS X 2013-005, installed instead: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572. But before doing this, first uninstall java 7 using the instructions here: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/mac_uninstall_java.xml

I have tested it on Lion and Mountain Lion and its the same issue. I'm not sure you understand the issue though.

Just to make it clear that the java error I get as listed above is the same error on any Browser on any Operating system (not just mac) when using the java client on citrix. So the issue is with the Java configuration on the server I would have thought.

Thanks

I am out of ideas, I guess I will not be of help anymore. Perhaps you can raise a request for attention to get other experts on in this thread.

Java 7 u51 (and respective Java 6 enterprise, openjdk and whatever) plugin does not allow unsigned classes. You need update from citrix properly signing their applet.
Actually it showed warnings in debug windows for last half-year.

In Java what are your network connection properties set to? Are you going direct or though proxy. If using a proxy try setting it to Direct.

I have run into problems in the past on windows client were the "Enable next Generation plug-in..." option in Java -> Advanced has caused problems with so of my apps and disabling this fix things...

Just a thought?

Receiver is JNLP application
I'd bet there is a plugin patch similar to one I gave.
