Points to Note

Some important aspects to keep in mind while using Build 48.13.

NetScaler SDX appliance

  • The message "Appliance license expired" appears when you log on to the NetScaler SDX GUI, after upgrading from any previous NetScaler version to 12.1 48.13. This is a harmless message and can be ignored safely.

What's New?

The enhancements and changes that are available in Build 48.13.

AAA-TM

  • Support to pass through RADIUS attribute 66 (Tunnel-Client-Endpoint)
    The NetScaler appliance now allows the pass-through of RADIUS attribute 66 (Tunnel-Client-Endpoint) during RADIUS authentication. By applying this feature, the clients IP address is received by second-factor authentication from entrusting to make risk-based authentication decisions.
    A new attribute “tunnelEndpointClientIP” is introduced in both “add authentication radiusAction” and “set radiusParams” command.
    To use this feature, at the NetScaler command prompt, type:
    • add authentication radiusAction <name> {-serverIP <ip_addr|ipv6_addr|*> | {-serverName <string>}} [-serverPort <port>] … [-tunnelEndpointClientIP (ENABLED|DISABLED)]
    • set radiusParams {-serverIP <ip_addr|ipv6_addr|*> |{-serverName <string>}} [-serverPort<port>] … [-tunnelEndpointClientIP(ENABLED|DISABLED)]

Known Issues

The issues that exist in Build 48.13.

AAA-TM

  • The back end is not accessible through a clientless VPN (CVPN). The issue occurs when SSO is ON, the proxy is specified in a traffic action, and the back-end credentials are different from the logon credentials.
    Workaround:
    Create a traffic policy based on back-end URL and create a trafficAction with SSO OFF and No Proxy. The backend should be accessible.
