Deploying the Web Interface in the Secure Network

In this deployment, the Web Interface resides in the secure, internal network. NetScaler Gateway is in the DMZ. NetScaler Gateway authenticates user requests before sending the requests to the Web Interface.

When you deploy the Web Interface in the secure network, you must configure authentication on NetScaler Gateway.

If you deploy the Web Interface with Citrix XenDesktop, deploying the Web Interface in the secure network is the default deployment scenario. When the Desktop Delivery Controller is installed, a custom version of the Web Interface is also installed.

Important: When the Web Interface is in the secure network, you should enable authentication on NetScaler Gateway. Users connect to NetScaler Gateway, type their credentials, and then connect to the Web Interface. When you disable authentication, unauthenticated HTTP requests are sent directly to the server running the Web Interface. Disabling authentication on NetScaler Gateway is recommended only when the Web Interface is in the DMZ and users connect directly to the Web Interface.
