IP Addressing

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).
