  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand NetScaler Gateway > Policies and then click Session.
  2. In the details pane, click Add.
  3. In the Create NetScaler Gateway Session Policy dialog box, next to Match Any Expression, click the down arrow, select Advanced Free-Form and then click Add.
  4. In the Add Expression dialog box, do the following:
    1. In Expression Type, click General.
    2. In Flow Type, select REQ.
    3. In Protocol, select HTTP.
    4. In Qualifier, select Header.

If users install the following versions of Receiver, you need to configure the following session profile for the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in:

  • Receiver for Windows 3.4
  • Receiver for Windows 8/RT 1.3
  • Receiver for Mac 11.7
