Sometimes we have the need to show up the Citrix Connection Bar.

Citrix Connection Bar Igel Receiver
Citrix Connection Bar

To do this, we have several options:

Basically, we are looking for all the receivers versions and add the parameter ” ConnectionBar=true ” to every ” All_Regions.ini ” file.

  • Manually: modify the INI file in the Igel endpoint. (/services/ica/ICAClient_13.xx.xx/config/All_Regions.ini ) and adding this
    “ConnectionBar=true” . But with this option you have to be aware about what receiver version are you using, because the path ” ICAClient_13.xx.xx ” changes.
  • Automatically: Creating a profile for this purpose :

script change automaticalley connection bar citrix
Script to change it automatically.

WARNNING: if you want to make it works , first you have to apply the profile, and after that you must reboot the machine to enable this change.

grep -q -F ‘ConnectionBar’ /services/ica/ICAClient_13./config/All_Regions.ini | sed -i ‘305 i\ConnectionBar=true ‘ /services/ica/ICAClient_13./config/All_Regions.ini

  1. Hi, will the Citrix connection bar group multiple ICA sessions together making it easy to switch between them? Now, with the native IGEL connection bar on top. Users first have to minimize the session and select the other session they want from their task bar (if already launched).

    • Hi Peter, with Citrix Connection Bar, you can switch between different sessions, just push in SWITCH buttom and you have all them grouped.

  2. Hi @Daniel – as an FYI, you don’t need a script for this anymore. It’s in the IGEL registry. Go to: ica.allregions.connectionbar and set “Citrix Connection Bar” to ON. If I recall, this was added into IGELOS sometime back in 10.04 or 10.05.
