Make sure your client workstation is connected to the network that
contains the Citrix server before using the ICA UNIX Client. Ask
your system administrator if you are not sure how to connect to the
network.
Starting the ICA UNIX Client
Using ICA UNIX Client Features
The ICA UNIX Client main window lets you create and edit
connection entries. Connection entries contain configuration options
that define the attributes of the ICA sessions you run on Citrix
servers.
After you connect to a Citrix server or published application, the ICA
UNIX Client provides additional features that make remote control
computing just like using a desktop computer. The ICA UNIX Client
provides you with hotkeys, clipboard support, and access to local
storage devices and printers.
ù To start the ICA UNIX Client
• At the UNIX prompt, type /usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr and press
RETURN, where /usr/lib/ICAClient is the directory in which you
installed the ICA Client.
Note If the ICA UNIX Client is not installed in the default
installation directory, ensure that the environment variable
ICAROOT is set to point to the actual installation directory.
Toolbar Buttons
The ICA UNIX Client toolbar contains the following buttons:
Use this
To
Add a new remote application entry.
Copy the selected remote application entry.
Delete the selected remote application entry.
Edit or view the selected remote application.
Connect to the selected remote application.
Connecting to a Citrix Server
ù To connect to a Citrix server or published application
• Double-click the desired entry in the entry list, or place the cursor
bar on the desired entry and click the Connect button on the
toolbar, or from the Entry menu, click Connect. If the entry
contains a valid user name and password, the ICA Client logs on
as that user name. If no user name and password are present in
the entry, the server logon screen appears. Enter a valid user
name and password for the Citrix server and click OK to begin
the session.
ICA UNIX Client Hotkeys
The Citrix UNIX Client provides hotkeys that can be used to control
various functions while in an ICA session. ICA Client hotkeys let
you define alternative key combinations for the hotkeys Alt+F1 to
Alt+F12, because these are reserved for use by X Windows. By
default, UNIX hotkeys Alt+F1 to Alt+F12 are mapped to
Alt+Ctrl+F1 to Alt+Ctrl+F12 in your ICA sessions.
To change the default values, click Options, Settings in the ICA
UNIX Client main window. In the Settings dialog box, select
Hotkeys from the pull-down menu.
Any Alt key combinations not used by your X Window manager can
be used as usual within your Citrix session. In addition, the key
combination Ctrl+Alt+Enter can be used to produce the PC key
combination Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
Transparent Clipboard Access
You can use the client workstation’s clipboard to cut and paste
objects between applications running locally on the client computer
and applications running remotely in an ICA session. Access to the
local clipboard requires no special procedures; using the familiar cut,
copy, and paste commands, you can transfer text, pictures, files, and
other objects back and forth between local and remote applications.
You can use the xcapture program to assist the exchange of graphical
data between the Citrix server clipboard and non-ICCM-compliant
X-window applications on the X-desktop. See the Citrix ICA Unix
Client Administrator’s Guide for instructions on how to use xcapture.
Accessing Local Directories
Client drive mapping makes any directory mounted on your UNIX
computer, including CD-ROMs, available to you during ICA sessions
on Citrix servers. When a Citrix server is configured to allow client
drive mapping, you can access your locally stored files, work with
them during your ICA sessions, and then save them either on a
mounted directory or on a drive on the Citrix server.
ù To map a directory on the UNIX workstation to your ICA
5. Make sure Enable Drive Mapping is checked. Click OK. Log
off any connections already established and reconnect. The same
drive mapping and access settings apply to all connection entries.
ù To view mapped client directories when connected to a
MetaFrame server
• From within the ICA Client session, double-click My Computer
on the remote desktop. The My Computer screen appears:
session
1. In the ICA Client main window, click Options and then click
Settings. In the Settings dialog box, select Drive Mapping from
the pull-down menu:
In this example, drives A, C, D, and E are storage devices on the
MetaFrame server. Drives G and H are directories on the UNIX
workstation mapped to this ICA session. You can access these
directories by specifying drive G or H for any operation.
Depending on the configuration of the Citrix server, your mapped
directories may or may not be immediately available when you log
on. If the drive letters you specify in the Drive Mapping screen are
already in use by the Citrix server, your UNIX directories are mapped
to other available drive letters.
For each Citrix server drive letter, the Drive Mapping list shows
the disk or pathname of the UNIX directory mapped to the drive.
In the Enable/Read/Write columns, icons display whether each
mapped directory is enabled for use and what type of access you
have to the drive.
2. Click the check box in the Enable column next to an available
drive letter and then click in the corresponding field. For
example, in the dialog box shown above, you can select F:.
3. Click Modify. Select the UNIX directory you want to map and
click OK.
4. The mapped directory appears in the Drive Mapping list. If the
drive letter you selected is not available on the Citrix Server, the
specified directory is mapped to another free drive letter at logon.
Published applications and ICA server connections that run a
specified initial program offer you the same access to your local
directories. When connected to published applications, you can
access local directories in the same way you would when using
locally run applications.
ù To manually map a client directory on a Citrix server
Mapped directories that do not appear after logon can be manually
mapped from within an ICA session. Use the following procedure to
manually map a client directory.
1. Log on to the Citrix server.
2. On a WINFRAME server, Start File Manager. In the Disk menu,
click Connect Network Drive. The Connect Network Drive
dialog box appears.
On a MetaFrame server, start Windows NT Explorer. In the
Tools menu, click Map Network Drive. The Map Network
Drive dialog box appears.
3. In the Drive field, select a server drive letter. This drive letter
represents the mapped client drive.
4. In the Shared Directories list, double-click Client Network,
Client, and then select the appropriate icon for your UNIX
directory from the list of available client drives.
5. If you want to have this drive available to you each time you log
on to this server, check Reconnect at Logon. Click OK.
Accessing Local Printers
Client printer mapping lets you access printers attached to your client
computer during ICA sessions. When a Citrix server is configured to
allow client printer mapping, applications running remotely on the
Citrix server can print to local printers. With the ICA UNIX Client,
you can print to any spooled printer available from the UNIX
workstation.
ù To map a local printer on a WINFRAME server
1. Log on to the WINFRAME server.
2. In the Main program group, double-click Print Manager. In the
Printer Manager window you should see an icon or open dialog
box for a network printer with a name similar to
workstation#printer, where workstation is the UNIX workstation
name and printer is the UNIX name for the printer.
3. If no client printer is available, select Connect to Printer from
the Printer menu.
4. In the Shared Printer list, double-click Client Network and
then double-click Client.
5. Select the client printer icon, which will have a name similar to
workstation#printer, and click OK.
6. If you want this printer to be your default printer, select it in the
Default menu at the top of the Printers window.
4. If no client printer is available, double-click Add Printer. The
Add Printer wizard appears.
5. Click Network printer server and then click Next.
6. Double-click Client Network and then double-click Client.
7. Select the printer from the list displayed. Spooled printers
available on the UNIX workstation have a name similar to
workstation#printer. Click OK.
8. If you want this printer to be your default printer, click Yes and
then click Next.
9. Click Finish.
Audio Mapping
Audio mapping allows your client computer to play sounds generated
by applications running on the Citrix server.
ù To configure Audio mapping for a Connection Entry
1. In the ICA Client main window, select the name of the
connection you want.
2. Click Properties from the Entry menu, or click the Properties
button. The Properties dialog box shows the current properties of
the selected connection.
3. In the Properties dialog box, select Connection from the
pull-down menu.
4. Select Enable Sound to enable sound support. Select High,
Medium, or Low quality depending on the available bandwidth.
Client Audio mapping can cause excessive load on the Citrix servers
and the network. To avoid network congestion, your system
administrator may disable audio mapping or limit the audio quality
from the server.
Mapping COM ports
ù To map a local printer on a MetaFrame server
1. Log on to the MetaFrame server.
2. Click Start on the taskbar, point to Settings, then click Printers.
3. In the Printers window you should see an icon for a network
printer with a name similar to workstation#printer, where
workstation is the UNIX workstation name and printer is the
UNIX name for the printer.
If you are running the ICA Client on Linux, you can perform
bi-directional mapping of Linux serial devices, e.g. /dev/ttys0, to
Citrix Server COM ports. This allows a user at the client workstation
to use local devices like modems, serial printers, and bar-code
scanners seamlessly from the applications running on the Citrix
server.
ù To configure COM port mapping
1. In the ICA Client main window, click Options and then click
Settings.
2. In the Settings dialog box, select Preferences from the
pull-down menu.
3. Click Add to map a COM port.
Ending a Citrix Server Connection
Citrix servers support two types of connection termination. You can
log off or disconnect. Logging off ends your session. Disconnecting
leaves your session executing on the server. You can reconnect to a
disconnected session and resume any tasks left executing on the
server. For example, you can connect to a Citrix server and execute
an application that requires an extended period of time to complete a
task. After starting the task, you can disconnect the session. You can
reconnect to the session at a later time to retrieve the results of the
operation.
ù To log off from a Citrix server connection during an active
session
• To log off from a WINFRAME server, click File in Program
Manager in your active session and then click Logoff. Click OK
to the confirmation message.
To log off from a MetaFrame server, click Start in your active
session and then click Logoff. Click OK to the confirmation
message.
ù To disconnect from a Citrix server connection during an active
session
• To disconnect from a WINFRAME server, click File in Program
Manager in your active session and then click Disconnect. Click
OK to the confirmation message.
To disconnect from a MetaFrame server, click Start in your
active session and then click Disconnect. Click OK to the
confirmation message.
ù To exit the ICA UNIX Client
• In the ICA Client main window, click the Entry menu and then
click Exit or press ALT+F4.
