I had some trouble getting the ICA client to connect to a site in Ubuntu today. Actually, it’s been for a few days. I’m not entirely sure if I’ve used Ubuntu for Citrix stuff.
Anyway, whenever clicking on a connection on the Citrix web interface, the webica application would fail with this error: “Proxy connection failed: Internal error during proxy evaluation”
As I don’t use a proxy, this was a little odd.
After searching on the Citrix forums, I found this nugget which resolves the issue:
- Open up the terminal window
- mkdir .netscape
- cd .netscape
- gedit preferences.js
- In the editor, type:
- Save the file
Now, when you click on the Citrix icon, you should connect with no issue.
If you do happen to use a proxy server, change network.proxy.type to 1, and enter the relevant proxy details in the other lines.
