    I’m a bit of a newbie, so apologies if this is an RTFM issue.

    I have a happy environment with a couple dozen s50 clients, but the newest client doesn’t work as the others do. The new s50 (v6.3.1, build 21) automatically fills the linux desktop with icons for EVERY published app in my Citrix farm. At this point the user has not entered any Windows domain credentials and is logged on to the s50 as a guest.

    The older s50 clients (v6.3.0 build 39) don’t show any Citrix icons by default. I use WDM4.5 to push a config that has one Citrix published app (a Windows desktop).

    I’ve made no changes to the wlx.ini file since the newer client arrived.

    Any ideas how I can make the new client behave as the old ones do?

    Thanks

    Wow, that’s strange!

    Mine does not do that – is it possible the config you pushed has some credentials in it?

    Here is what I would do, get a new unit and upgrade it with Wyse Simple Imager to a factory 6.3.1 build 21 image from wyse.com. Before you put it on the network give it a static IP.

    Now configure the icon on the desktop manually, does it have the same issue?

    If it works try pointing it to the wlx.ini – what happens now?

    Can you post back with what you find?

    Cheers,

    Update: The problem went away when I loaded v6.3.0 build 36 on the newest S50. This build was available on wyse.com and was just a bit older than the v6.3.0 build 39 S50s I have that are working happily.

    Obviously, this isn’t a sustainable fix but at least it’s functional.

    My wlx.ini was created by the Configuration Generator.exe tool that I found through a tip on http://www.freewysemonkeys.com. (Thanks!) Maybe someone can identify an issue within?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    I think its the line:

    MPServer=kyctx14s.mycompany.local

    This will show the icons from the server as it turns on the ICA client to browse. This is a new feature which is why it is not there in older firmware.

    If you want in published desktop try creating a connect statement:

    connect=ica
    description=”Login to Network…”
    icon=default
    domainname=ica
    HttpBrowsing=0
    browserip=192.168.1.50
    application=”My Desktop”
    Fullscreen=1
    autoconnect=0

    This will create 1 icon for your desktop and you have a second for firefox,

    Cheers,
    -TT

    Thanks for this.

    I have one question: With this suggestion, is the thin client getting the published app info over normal http (Citrix XML)? We would prefer to not use UDP 1604.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    This was an example, you can use HttpBrowsing=1 for XML resolution. Main thing is the single connect string will publish one icon for you not every available app.

    Post back how you get on,
