Integrating NetScaler Gateway with XenApp or XenDesktop

Feb 07, 2014

When you configure NetScaler Gateway for user connections, you can include settings for network traffic to XenApp, XenDesktop, or both. To do so, you configure NetScaler Gateway and the Web Interface to communicate with each other.

The tasks for integrating these products include:

  • Creating a Web Interface site in the XenApp or XenDesktop farm.
  • Configuring settings within the Web Interface to route user connections through NetScaler Gateway.
  • Configuring NetScaler Gateway to communicate with the Web Interface and the Secure Ticket Authority (STA).

You can also configure NetScaler Gateway to communicate with a XenApp server farm by deploying NetScaler Gateway in a double-hop DMZ. For more information, see Deploying NetScaler Gateway in a Double-Hop DMZ.

NetScaler Gateway and Web Interface use the STA and Citrix XML Service to establish user connections. The STA and XML Service run on the XenApp or XenDesktop server.
