Outbound ICA Proxy support

Outbound ICA Proxy support for NetScaler Gateway enables the network administrators to avail SmartControl functionalities even when Receiver and NetScaler Gateway are deployed in different organizations.

The following scenario illustrate the use of the Outbound ICA Proxy Solution:

A network administrator requires control over the ICA session related capabilities when Receiver and NetScaler Gateway are deployed in different organizations.

Understanding the Outbound ICA Proxy support 

In order to bring the SmartControl functionality to the enterprise organization, company A, which has the receiver, we need to add a NetScaler appliance which acts as a LAN Proxy. The NetScaler LAN Proxy enforces SmartControl and proxies the traffic to the NetScaler Gateway of Company B. In this deployment scenario, the Receiver forwards the traffic to the NetScaler LAN Proxy which allows the network administrator of Company A to enforce SmartControl. The deployment is depicted in the figure below.

In this scenario, the traffic between the LAN Proxy and the NetScaler Gateway is over SSL.

Note Client certificate based authentication must not be enabled on the NetScaler Gateway.
