Chapter 2. NetScaler Gateway™

NetScaler Gateway is one of the most commonly used features of NetScaler. In earlier versions, Citrix had products such as Secure Gateway or Access Gateway, but with the 10.1 release of NetScaler, it was renamed NetScaler Gateway. In the version 11 release, Citrix also introduced a new feature called Unified Gateway, which also builds upon the NetScaler Gateway feature. NetScaler Gateway does the same task that it did before; it grants users remote access through a gateway to the corporate network. It has multiple features and ways in which it can give end users access to the corporate network, which we will cover throughout this chapter. So here is a quick overview of what we will be covering in this chapter:

  • Basics of NetScaler Gateway

  • Different connection methods and settings

  • Sample setup scenarios

  • Integrating with XenDesktop/XenApp

  • Configuring StoreFront

  • Unified Gateway
