Citrix ADC


  • When I use Firefox to compare two Citrix ADC configurations, the browser seems to freeze?

    Firefox will eventually display the differences in the configurations, but the process takes a considerable amount of time if there are more than 1000 differences. Use Chrome for a faster response.

  • I am using a MAC Safari browser to upgrade a Citrix ADC. On the upgrade wizard, when I click the Browse button to choose the build file from the appliance, the dialog box does not show any files or folders. Also, when I navigate back to the root folder, the dialog box displays the top level folder, but I cannot browse it. What should I do?

    On the Safari browser, click the Settings icon and navigate to Preferences > Security > Manage Website Settings > Java, and then change the value of the When visiting other websites setting to Run in unsafe mode.

  • What should I do before accessing the GUI?

    Before accessing a new version of the Citrix ADC software:

    • Clear browser cache including cookies.
    • Access GUI in browser incognito mode.
    • Access GUI in some other browser.
    • Clear ‘Use software acceleration’ option in setting and restart the browser.
    • Access chrome: extensions, clear the ‘Enable’ box and restart the Chrome browser.
  • Which port should I open to access GUI using HTTP or HTTPS?

    The following lists the default port numbers for HTTP and HTTPS management services (GUI) in the Citrix ADC MPX, VPX and CPX appliances:

    • Citrix ADC MPX and VPX appliances: 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS)
    • Citrix ADC CPX appliances: 9080 (HTTP) and 9443 (HTTPS)

    Also, you can configure ports for HTTP and HTTPS management services (GUI) other than port 80 and 443. For more information, see Configure HTTP and HTTPS management ports.

  • With which browsers is the GUI compatible for different operating systems?

    The following table lists the compatible browsers for NetScaler GUI version 12.0, 12.1, and 13.0:

    Operating System Browser Versions
    Windows 7 & later Internet Explorer 11, Edge, & later
    Windows 7 & later Mozilla Firefox 45 & later
    Windows 7 & later Chrome 60 & later
    MAC Mozilla Firefox 45 & later
    MAC Safari 10.1.1 & later
  • When I access the GUI by using Internet Explorer version 8 or 9, the browser displays only a grey bar at the top of the screen. What should I do?

    The browser might be set in compatibility mode. To disable compatibility mode, go to Tools > Compatibility View Settings and clear the Display all websites in Compatibility View check box.

    Compatibility settings

  • Even after I disable compatibility mode in Internet Explorer version 8 or 9, the GUI does not appear. What should I do?

    Make sure that the browser mode and document mode in the browser are set to the same version. To view the configuration, press F12. Set the values to either Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9.

  • After logging into the Citrix ADC appliance, the page appears blank. What should I do?

    Make sure you have disabled the Protected mode in your browser settings. If this is enabled, the Java Script is causing the Citrix ADC user interface screen to appear blank.

    To disable this option:

    1. In your Internet Explorer browser settings, go to Internet Options.

    2. Go to Security tab settings, click Restricted sites zone to disable Enable Protected Mode check box.

    3. Click Apply and OK.

  • When I access the GUI by using Internet Explorer version 9, the utility displays the following error message: “You are not logged in. Please login.” What should I do?

    Make sure that the cookies are not blocked in your Internet Explorer settings. Go to Tools > Internet Options. Click the Privacy tab, and then under Settings, make sure that the slider is set to Medium or any lower value.
