Does citrix ica client work on slackware 64 (with multilib enabled)

Need to use remote access via citrix ica client. My workplace has updated the citrix server ("citrix web access") and now I cannot get the client to work.
I can authenticate and get a list of available applications, but I cannot use any of those applications. Error message says "no route to server".
Has anybody had success with the citrix client on slackware that they are willing to share?

I use the citrix client on Slackware 13.0 x86_64 and you have to have a multilib setup because the citrix client is 32-bit.

Works really well.
Personally I am using openmotif because the citrix client is linking against it, but I heard a story of a collegue that using Slackware's lesstif works too. My script that is part of the compat32-tools will create a lesstiff-compat32 package for you for use with the 32-bit citrix client.

My openmotif package can be found here (use installpkg to install openmotif after you have run "removepkg lesstif", the two packages conflict):

Thanks Alien Bob,

I have used your compat32 scripts and tools with great success, Thank You.

Looks like my problem is more likely due to not establishing a vpn connection properly. In the past I haven't specifically had to do this (perhaps I didn't need to?), the citrix linux ica client just worked.

Am in the process of attempting to set up openvpn (my aim is to have it working seamlessly so that when I select an application to run the vpn is autmatically selected/used/set up.)
