Once your initial configuration is in place, you can configure settings to define the behavior of the Citrix NetScaler appliance and facilitate connection management. You have a number of options for handling HTTP requests and responses. Routing, bridging, and MAC based forwarding modes are available for handling packets not addressed to the NetScaler. You can define the characteristics of your network interfaces and can aggregate the interfaces. To prevent timing problems, you can synchronize the NetScaler clock with a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server. The NetScaler can operate in various DNS modes, including as an authoritative domain name server (ADNS). You can set up SNMP for system management and customize syslog logging of system events. Before deployment, verify that your configuration is complete and correct.
