    I am trying to setup a $mac.ini that will automatically log in to a Citrix session with the credentials inside the mac.ini file but I would like those credentials to be encrypted so that someone can’t just open the file and see the user/pass. Is there something I’m missing in the documentation to make this work?

    Here is my ini file:

    signon=0
    connect=ica application="Word" browserip=tacos.tacobell.com description="Microsoft Word" resolution=default fullscreen=1 colors=true autoconnect=1 username="jimbeam" password="horseface" domainname=isolyser httpbrowsing=yes icon=default mapdisk=no
    exit=all

    I have tried using ConfGen to create an encrypted user/pass which it does, but the ini file doesn’t unencrypt the user/pass when trying to log in to the Citrix session.

    Nevermind! Figured it out with ConfGen! What a great utility!

    here is what you do though, instead of using “username” and “password”, use the following:

    username-enc=234873247
    password-enc=f2iofhaofh

    I use ConfGen to create the encrypted data for me as I’m not sure how else to get that info.

    Thats it exactly – use ConfGen to create the passwords! As you point out the trick is to use the -enc on the end of the username and password line in the INI.
