Configuring Routing on NetScaler Gateway

Jan 22, 2014

To provide access to internal network resources, NetScaler Gateway must be capable of routing data to your internal, secure networks. By default, NetScaler Gateway uses a static route.

The networks to which NetScaler Gateway can route data are determined by the way you configure the NetScaler Gateway routing table and the default gateway that you specify for NetScaler Gateway.

The NetScaler Gateway routing table must contain the routes necessary to route data to any internal network resource that a user may need to access.

NetScaler Gateway supports the following routing protocols:
  • Routing Information Protocol (RIP v1 and v2)
  • Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
  • Border Gateway Protocol (BGF)

Configuring a Static Route

When setting up communication with another host or network, you may need to configure a static route from NetScaler Gateway to the new destination if you do not use dynamic routing.

To configure a static route

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand System > Network > Advanced and then click Routes.
  2. In the details pane, on the Basic tab, click Add.
  3. Configure the settings for the route and then click Create.

To test a static route

  1. In the configuration utility, in the navigation pane, expand System and then click Diagnostics.
  2. In the details pane, under Utilities, click Ping.
  3. Under Parameters, in Host name, type the name of the device.
  4. Under Advanced, in Source IP Address, type the IP address of the device and then click Run.

    If you are successfully communicating with the other device, messages indicate that the same number of packets were transmitted and received, and zero packets were lost.

    If you are not communicating with the other device, the status messages indicate that zero packets were received and all the packets were lost. To correct this lack of communication, repeat the procedure to add a static route.

To stop the test, in the Ping dialog box, click Stop and then click Close.
