Configure address pools (IIP) for a Citrix Gateway appliance

In some situations, users who connect with the Citrix Gateway Plug-in need a unique IP address for a Citrix ADC Gateway appliance. When you enable address pools (also known as IP pooling) for a group, the Citrix Gateway appliance can assign a unique IP address alias to each user. You configure address pools by using intranet IP (IIP) addresses.

You can configure address pools on a  Citrix Gateway appliance deployed on Azure by following this 2-step procedure:

  • Registering the private IP addresses that will be used in the address pool, in Azure
  • Configuring address pools  in the Citrix Gateway appliance

Register a private IP address in the Azure portal

In Azure, you can deploy a Citrix ADC VPX instance with multiple IP addresses. You can add IP addresses to a VPX instance in two ways:

a. While provisioning a VPX instance

For more information about how to add multiple IP addresses while provisioning a VPX instance, see Configure multiple IP addresses for a Citrix ADC standalone instance. To add IP addresses by using PowerShell commands while provisioning a VPX instance, see Configure multiple IP addresses for a Citrix ADC VPX instance in standalone mode by using PowerShell commands.

b. After provisioning a VPX instance

After you’ve provisioned a VPX instance, follow these steps to register a private IP address in the Azure portal, which you configure as an address pool in the Citrix Gateway appliance.

1. From Azure Resource Manager (ARM), go to the already created Citrix ADC VPX instance > Network interfaces. Choose the network interface which is bound to a subnet to which the IIP that you want to register belongs.

Configure address pools in the Citrix Gateway appliance

For more information about how to configure address pools on the Citrix Gateway, see this Configuring Address Pools.

Limitation: You can not bind a range of IIP addresses to users. Every IIP address that is used in an address pool should be registered.
