[THIN] Re: PNAgent ICA Client

Every time I've posted questions about the PNAgent, I never get
responses either.  I don't think many people use it out there.  I still
haven't deployed it (but I'd like to) because I can't get answers to my
questions either.  As far as I know from playing with the PNAgent
extensively, the only things you can set in the PNAgent is the stuff in
the config.xml.  If there isn't a setting in there, you can't change it.
As that applies to your two problems below, there aren't settings in the
config.xml for it, so I'd assume you can't change them.

I don't seem to be getting any bites on my PNAgent questions.  Perhaps
someone who uses the full program Neighboorhood Client could tell me if
either #1 or #2 below are a type of situation one would need to worry
about (obviously not the exact situation, but one similar in reguards to
loss of connectivity).

I am investigating switchiong from the ICA32 Web Client to the PNAgent
client for ease of use on my users, having one less thing to login to
(thus we would use pass-through authentication for the client).

In any event, I've run into two scenarios that I'm wondering if anyone
else has dealth with

1) If the PNAgent Client launches and you do not have a network
connection to the Citrix server, it gets an error and gives you the
ability to CANCEL (closes the agent), say NO which lets you change the
URL location of the server, or say NO which waits another predetermined
timeout period (seems to be 10 seconds).

The problem I have with this is if someone says YES, they are free to
change the URL.  This is something I don't want end users doing.  Is
there a way to disable this ability.  And is there a way to alter this
specific timeout in which the client connects to the webserver.

2) If the PNAgent Client has successfully connected and created icons to
published applications, but you then loose network connection to the
server, clicking shortcuts doesn't yield any error messages at all, the
computer just sits there like you didn't do anything.  This frustrates
users.  Is there any way to enable some type of dialog box in this
situation?

If you ask why I'm concerned about these situations, the reason is two
fold. I have users on VPN connections that are cable/DSL based.
Sometimes their connections terminate.  While they autoreconnect,
sometimes they don't negotiate, and sometimes internet connections are
just down.  All of which can cause the above situations to occur.
