After you install NetScaler Gateway, you are ready to obtain your Platform or Universal license files from Citrix. You log on to the Citrix web site to access your available licenses and generate a license file. After the license file is generated, you download it to a computer. When the license file is on the computer, you then upload it to NetScaler Gateway. For more information about Citrix licensing, see Citrix Licensing System.
Before obtaining your license files, make sure you configure the host name of the appliance by using the Setup Wizard and then restart the appliance.
To obtain your licenses, go to the Activate, upgrade and manage Citrix licenses web page. On this page, you can get your new license and activate, upgrade, and manage Citrix licenses.
