The website says version 11.2. But when I download and install, I get version 10.0. What's that all about?

Note that we have to use the "Citrix ICA Client Editor" first to create the connection.

This ICA client from Citrix is a horrid application. Very typical of a Windows centric company to produce crappy software that does not do anything rational that a user wants to do. The basic problems are:

1. Instead of creating one application you have an ICA client and a connection editor. You can not create the connection document from the client! You first must create it from the editor (even for temporary connections)!!!

2. Once you start the ICA client, it does nothing! Not even bring up the open dialog box to read a connection document. Heck, you might even thing that you did not start it and sit there trying to start it again.

3. The connection documents are not connected in any way to the ICA binary so you can not double click on them and start up the ICA client with the specified connection. You can not drag a connection document to the ICA client icon either.

4. Upon starting an ICA connection, one gets about 8 errors about trying to print a document. WTF! Where did that one come from?

5. Closing a connection is not that intuitive either.....

All around just a bad implementation of an ICA client. Makes me want to go get a frontal lobotomy just so I can be like all the other Windows users that use sub par software.

We use Citrix at Catholic Healthcare West; I was afraid I wouldn't be able to log-on when I got my new iMac, but this client works great with Firefox/Safari. Thank you very much.

MacBook/10.4.7 - the window that the client opens is small, roughly 1/4 of my screen, and nothing I do (on either the mac side or the windows side) increases the size. (As opposed to using the windows client on a windows machine which makes the entire screen available.) This makes the client of little use to me. If anyone else has experienced this issue and knows of a solution I'd be happy to hear of it.

I don't know if you're the Citrix admin or not, but the Mac client picks up the settings of the published application inside Citrix -- and the default is a tiny 640x480. It can be changed in those settings. It won't affect Windows (ICA32) users as those default to using Seamless Windows which ignores the published application settings.

This works fine minus the fact its not a universal binary. And thus Rossetta makes its eat system memory like mad! So if your like me that can have 2-3 Citrix windows or sessions running at the same time your really going to feel the lag and your avaiable memory is going to drop drastically. So much that I am checking nearly weekly to see if Citrix has released a Universal Binary of this product. (PLEASE CITRIX. HURRY UP)

But it does work.
