Configuring the Appliance to Communicate with the Appliance Proxy

When you deploy NetScaler Gateway in a double-hop DMZ, you must configure NetScaler Gateway in the first DMZ to communicate with the NetScaler Gateway proxy in the second DMZ.

If you deploy multiple appliances in the second DMZ, you configure each appliance in the first DMZ to communicate with every proxy appliance in the second DMZ.

Note: If you want to use IPv6, you configure the next hop server by using the configuration utility. To do so, expand NetScaler Gateway > Resources and then click Next Hop Servers. Follow the steps in the following procedure and then select the IPv6 check box.

To configure NetScaler Gateway to communicate with the NetScaler Gateway Proxy

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, expand NetScaler Gateway > Resources and then click Next Hop Servers.
  2. In the details pane, click Add.
  3. In Name, type a name for the first NetScaler Gateway.
  4. In IP address, type the virtual server IP address of the NetScaler Gateway proxy in the second DMZ.
  5. In Port, type the port number, click Create and then click Close. If you are using a secure port, such as 443, select Secure.

You must configure each NetScaler Gateway installed in the first DMZ to communicate with all NetScaler Gateway proxy appliances installed in the second DMZ.

After you configure the settings for the NetScaler Gateway proxy, bind the policy to Next Hop Servers in NetScaler Gateway Global or to a virtual server.

To bind the NetScaler Gateway next hop server globally

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, expand NetScaler Gateway > Resources and then click Next Hop Servers.
  2. In the details pane, select a next hop server and then in Action, select Global Bindings.
  3. In the Configure Next Hop Server Global Binding dialog box, in Next Hop Server Name, select the proxy appliance and then click OK.

To bind the NetScaler Gateway next hop server to a virtual server

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, expand NetScaler Gateway and then click Virtual Servers.
  2. In the details pane, select a virtual server and then click Open.
  3. On the Published Applications tab, under Next Hop Servers, click an item and then click OK.

You can also add a next hop server from the Published Applications tab.
