Configure load balancing for commonly used protocols

In addition to Web sites and Web-based applications, other types of network-deployed applications that use other common protocols often receive large amounts of traffic and therefore benefit from load balancing. Several of these protocols require specific configurations for load balancing to work properly. Among them are FTP, DNS, SIP, and RTSP.

If you configure your NetScaler appliance to use domain names for your servers rather than IPs, you may also need to set up IP translation and masking for those servers.
