IP Addressing

Aug 28, 2013

Before you can configure the NetScaler appliance, you must assign the NetScaler IP Address (NSIP), also known as the Management IP address. You can also create other NetScaler-owned IP addresses for abstracting servers and establishing connections with the servers. In this type of configuration, the appliance serves as a proxy for the abstracted servers. You can also proxy connections by using network address translations (INAT and RNAT). When proxying connections, the appliance can behave either as a bridging (Layer 2) device or as a packet forwarding (Layer 3) device. To make packet forwarding more efficient, you can configure static ARP entries. For IPv6, you can configure neighbor discovery (ND).
