Delays in citrix session with the client Receiver 13.4

We observed symptoms of network latency in the session using citrix client Receiver 13.4.

This client is available by default on website.



We met symptoms that seems being network issues :
– Screen freezes

– Keystroke shifted in time

– Slow windows refresh

The mouse is generally available.



We perform our tests in a multi-farm and  various versions of XenApp environment.

We had to source a webinterface 5.4

We haven’t encountered any problems with XenApp 6.5, 6.0 and 5.0 infrastructure.

This issue concern only connection to Citrix Presentation Server 4.0


We therefore downgrade our client citrix to version 13.3

All symptoms have disappeared.

We offer and recommend using this client: Citrix Receiver 13.3 for using a connection to a Citrix 4.0 infrastructure

    We have the same issue with 13.4! Our company has a mix of farm versions and until we get everything upgraded 13.4 is horrible citrix broke it. It should be mentioned by them if compatibility is going to be taken away.
