2.Upon visiting the site I was prompted to download this package: linuxx86.tar.gz

  1. You might not, but I came across this problem. Upon connecting theCitrix Server I was getting this error message:

SSL Error61: You have not chosen to trust “Cybertrust SureServer standard Validation CA”, the issuer of the server’s security certificate.”

Don’t waste time on looking for this .cer file on the internet. You won’t find it! I had my company administrator send it to me, after which I typed these two commands in the terminal:
