Before you begin configuring the appliance, make sure that the following prerequisites have been met:

  • You should have physical access to the appliance.
  • In the Worksheet, record all IP addresses and other values you would use to configure the appliance. Preferably, print the worksheet before you start the configuration process.
  • You should already have an SD-WAN license key from Citrix, sent in an email. If you are using remote licensing, you need the IP address of the licensing server.
  • WAN and LAN Send and Receive Speeds.


Before you start provisioning the appliance, Citrix recommends that you have the license file with you, as it is required early in the configuration process. To download a license file, complete the procedure described in the My Account All Licensing Tools - User Guide. For more information, seeLicensing.
