Install the Citrix Receiver client in macOS

This procedure installs the Citrix Receiver client in macOS which allows users to run the programs shown in the LUapps storefront.  

To make the connection, you must be connected to the Lehigh network, either directly or via the ‘VPN’.  

The programs run in a virtualized environment, and are not themselves installed on the client Mac.  The virtualized environment provided by the client makes saving files a bit more complex than on one's own machine.  See 'Open and Save Files in the Citrix Environment (LUapps)’.

Step Number: 
1
Action: 

While connected to the Lehigh network, either directly or via VPN, open Safari, and navigate to luapps.lehigh.edu by following the link, or entering that into the address bar.  If the Citrix Receiver client is not currently installed on your system, you'll see a page asking to install it.
