Slackware 14.1 64 bit: Citrix: Cannot detect proxy server


So I'm running Slackware 14.1 - 64 bit with 32 bit multilib installed.

I have been using Citrix Receiver 13.0 for some time with success as I require access to some programs remotely in a number of different hospitals in my area. I recently took a new position requiring citrix access to yet another local hospital but with this institution when I try to load a program remotely I get the following error:

Quote:
Cannot detect proxy server
Contact your help desk with the following information: Proxy detection failure: .PAC script HTTP download failed: Connect failure.
This same Citrix install on my Slackware works flawlessly when connecting to other institutions. Of course the IT department does not know how to resolve this and they do not support linux. I have been using WinXP in a virtualbox for now but I would rather get this accomplished directly through linux. It's actually the only reason I still use Windows at all.

Suggestions?

No suggestion which immediately addresses your proxy server error, but I can confirm that I have been using the linux Citrix Client in both Slackware 14.0 and 14.1 with no problems. My use case is rather simple: I run 32-bit Slackware and I only connect to one server - at my work - and in setting that up I recall initial problems with security certificates.

The linux citrix client (called the "Citrix Receiver" can be downloaded from http://www.citrix.com/downloads/citr...linux-131.html.

Yes, but in that case you get an SSL error. I remember this problem as well but it is easily solved with:
Code:
cp /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/*.crt  /home/USER/ICAClient/linuxx86/keystore/cacerts/
or make a symlink instead.

I have a very different problem.

Hi Slacktivist,
i had the same Issue. It can be resolved with "ProxyFallback=Yes" in your wfclient.ini , or you can set ProxyType=None + AltProxyType=None in your All_Regions.ini. I've blogged about, see http://www.schroeffu.ch/2015/02/citr...-proxy-server/ for details

Thanks! That worked perfectly.
