Proxy Auto Configuration for Outbound Proxy support for Citrix Gateway

When you configure the Citrix Gateway appliance to support Proxy Auto Configuration (PAC), the URL of a PAC file is pushed to the client browser. The traffic from the client is then redirected to the respective proxies as determined by the conditions defined in the PAC file.

Following are some common use cases for PAC for outbound proxy:

  • To configure multiple proxy servers that handle client traffic.
  • To load-balance the proxy traffic across subnets.

Configure Citrix Gateway global parameters to support PAC for outbound proxy by using the CLI

At the command prompt, type:

set vpn parameter -proxy BROWSER -autoProxyUrl <URL>

Configure Citrix Gateway to support PAC in a session profile by using the CLI
