Quick Troubleshooting Tips

  • Make sure you are logging in thru your browser (Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer), not from a toolbar button (receiver).
  • If you can log into Citrix but can't open axiUm, make sure your browser Citrix plugins say Always Activate (see Help Desk Instructions).
  • Check your wireless connections.  Must be GRSecure.
  • If prompted for registration key, check computer name (provider#-citrix).  You only have a license for one device.  When you set up first access, we  enter the code.  If you change devices, you must change the name of the new device to exactly match the original device or it will ask for the registration key (see Step 1) .  Contact IT Service if you need further assistance.
  • If you can login to Citrix on campus, but receive the error message “Invalid credentials” when accessing from off-site, see IT to check your security group.
  • If you get a DigiCert SHA2 error, uninstall and reinstall Citrix (see step 2).  Digicert Error
  • If message says your account is inactive, change your password.  Password must be less than 13 characters.
  • If you click on the Content tab - Citrix Client Downloads, and you are NOT taken to a list of options, turn off the pop-up blocker on your browser.
  • If you see a line at the bottom of the screen that says launch.ica after clicking the axiUm icon, change your Compatibility View Settings.

Call the IT Help Desk, 706-721-4000, or go to the help desk in the Education Commons Bldg for any Citrix access issues.
