    Just wondering -- I'm using the Citrix ICA client v 10.00.603 to connect to my office Windows based system. Sometimes I can connect immediately; while other times it takes 3-4 or 5 attempts. When I can't connect, I just get a gray or sometimes blue blank screen. I then quit Citrix and re-connect. Does anyone else have the problem of inconsistent connections? Thanks

    cannot connect via PN

    i have similar problem where i can't connect via PN application set, i have to use web client. not citrix implementation - Windows clients have 'no' problems at all.

    using web client i do not experience your issues, i wish citrix provide an updated client.

    I also use the web client without problems. However, I need the Citrix client to get into some of the applications / files that are not available through the web client. At least I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem.

    My other half sometimes works from home using Citrix ICA client. On our old Vista PC, this only worked with IE and not FF.

    Now we have a Mac I'm wondering whether it will work with Safari - if not I might have to try a really old Mac version of IE (from here:

    Which browser-based ICA client are you guys using?

    Citrix does work with Safari. I use it to log into a Windows 2000 system; no problems connecting but I seem to have to download a citrix.ica file every time I do so. This automatically appears in my downloads folder and I just click on it to start the Citrix session.
