App Controller provides a ticketing service that is similar to the Secure Ticket Authority (STA) in XenApp and XenDeskop. WorxMail uses the ticketing service to allow users to stay connected for long periods of time without requiring them to authenticate multiple times.
App Controller and NetScaler Gateway work together to provide the ticketing service for users' connections. You configure settings on NetScaler Gateway and then configure policy settings for WorxMail on App Controller.
To allow connections through NetScaler Gateway, you must configure the following on the appliance:
When you configure the STA on NetScaler Gateway, you add the App Controller IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) as the STA to the URL. For example, https://myApp_Controller/ where myApp_Controller is the IP address or FQDN of App Controller. You also need to define ports 80 and 443 to allow connections. For more information about configuring the STA in NetScaler Gateway, see Configuring the Secure Ticket Authority on NetScaler Gateway.
You configure the following settings in App Controller:
Tickets issued by App Controller are not intended for one time use. The setting Background services ticket defines how long the ticket is valid. When WorxMail sends the ticket to NetScaler Gateway for SOCKS connectivity, WorxMail might append a #fqdn:port parameter to the end of the ticket to identify to which server and port App Controller prefers to connect.
This procedure assumes that you have already installed WorxMail in App Controller.
