Hello.

I have a WYSE thin client S10, firmware 7.1.22 that I'm trying to get onto a Citrix XenApp 6.5 farm. The units are getting "Connection Refused" when attempting to connect. INI file below:

IcaBrowsing=HTTP

CONNECT=ICA \
Host=192.168.1.26 \
BrowserIP=192.168.1.50/Citrix/xenapp \
Description="XenAPP 65 “ \
LocalCopy=no

are you able to connect with a other device and the pnagent/receiver to the server?
I think you need a WebInterface Site for receiver to connect with the thinclient (because there is a path behind the IP)
If the thinclient is able to connect the XML service directly, you should need no path. (try the IP only)

Unfortunately we've run into a new, wider problem with our WYSE units. For some reason they are connecting intermittently to our FTP server. This is how it works:

Site A has the Citrix array behind a SonicWall router
Site B had the IIS FTP server which fed the INI file to the S10 units

Units outside Site A CANNOT connect to the FTP server or the array consistently. So we moved the WNOS files to Site A to be served locally on a FileZilla FTP server. We are watching connections to the server, however the units are still not consistently getting connected to the FTP or the array.

NOTE: S10 units INSIDE the Site A firewall are working perfectly, every time. There is no rule we see on the firewall that would block FTP or cause intermittent connectivity with VPN traffic (we are allowing "All" to/from the VPN). The only two things that changed in our environment recently are: A few weeks ago we configured LDAP/SSO on our firewalls, so HTTP traffic is being authenticated across the same tunnel. Also, we put a pre-release firmware on the router at Site A to address some other issues. These two changes are the only ones that fit the timeline.

Any thoughts?

Why Off-Site Backups Are The Only Way To Go

You are probably backing up your data—but how and where? Ransomware is on the rise and there are variants that specifically target backups. Read on to discover why off-site is the way to go.

We are running a Citrix XenApp Web interface server and other non Wyse devices connect flawlessly. The Wyse terminals can connect to the old 4.5 farm, but not the 6.5 farm with same thinos config.

The wyse terminals from side B cannot connect to XenApp6.5?
There are no problems from Side A.
Do I understand that rightly?
Check if Port 2598 and 1494 are open at the firewall.

If all wyse terminals are unable to connect the xenapp 6.5 Farm ... possible they try the old browsing (port 1609 I think) which is no longer supported.

You should try to use PNAgent functions with wyse devices.

Just to clarify this Question:

WYSE devices running firmware 7.1.122 configured and working for Citrix PS 4.5 are not migrating to XenApp 6.5 smoothly with current WNOS.INI

Current WNOS.INI
;connect=ica \
IcaBrowsing=HTTP 
;description="Wellmore Desktop" \
;icon=default \
;username=" " \
;password=" " \
;browserip=192.168.1.26 \
;application="Wellmore Desktop" \
;autoconnect=1 \
;reconnect=0 \
;TcpTimeOut=200 \
;Sessionconfig=all unmapusb=no mapdisks=yes \
;IcaBrowsing=UDP \
;Seamless=yes \
PnliteServer=http://CX-F2-WI ReconnectAtLogon=2 ReconnectFromButton=2 Timeout=30 AutoConnectList="Wellmore:WellmoreDesktop"
Desktop" Timeout="30" \ 

Open in new window


The WYSE device boots up and ask for auth., then presents all published apps/desktops and we have to scroll to page 2 of apps and select Wellmore Desktop to connect to Citrix desktop.

A.) We would like to have it auto-connect to published app/desktop=WellmoreDesktop
B.) We want to lock down the ThinOS environment so settings do not get tampered with, or other published apps from  being accessible.

Thanks,

I resolved this by reordering my wnos.ini and adding the below at the top of the execution order:

PnliteServer=192.168.1.26 AutoConnectList="Wellmore:wellmoredesktop" ReconnectAtLogon=2

Open in new window

Researched and re-ordered the wnos.ini file statements, then tested successful.
