Citrix Receiver 13.0.x, 13.1.x, 13.2.x, 13.3.x, 13.4.x and 13.5.x on Linux only support StoreFront connections via HTTPS while the Citrix server's default setting is HTTP in most cases - so the connection will fail. You have to enable HTTPS connections on Citrix server and you have to make sure the thin client has a valid root certificate of the Certificate Authority (CA) available! A best practice document on how to distribute the certificate is available in the IGEL Knowledge Base: Deploying Trusted Root Certificates

Citrix Receiver 13.0 does currently not support Kerberos authentication.

Citrix Receiver 13.1 supports Kerberos passthrough authentication only with XenApp 6.5 or older.

Users can only change their expired password if this option has been enabled on the Citrix server. See FAQ Warning message when changing password.
