Citrix ICA problem

Question:
I have always wondered why the QNX ICA client takes
it’s time about connecting to the NT Server.
Compared to other TC’s it is a lot slower.

Today I noticed the LED on the FDD light up when I invoked a
connection to the NT Server.

Can this feature be removed.
The version used is the 1.1 beta.

I just tried 5 times
$ time ica …
Press esc at the nt login screen
I got less then 5 seconds each time.

I remember looking at this a while ago all the way
down to ethernet traces, and the conclusion was
that the NT machine pauses. I believe it has something
to do with the Windows tcp stack only playing nice
and working (relatively) fast with other windows tcp
stacks (BTW in the rtp port of the ica client I had to
set the RCVBUF to 4096 to keep nt streaming data,
bigger, smaller, window size available didn’t matter
to the nt stack…)

What drive mappings do you have? (although I don’t think the
ica client even looks at them until you login)
Run ‘sin fi’ and ‘sin fd’ when the floppy lights
to see who is accessing it

Can this feature be removed.
