Configuring Custom Clientless Access Policies for Receiver for Web

Feb 07, 2014

You can configure custom clientless access policies on NetScaler Gateway for user connections with Receiver for Web by adhering to the following guidelines:

  • Receiver requires that StoreFront XML traffic cannot be rewritten, which would occur when users connect to NetScaler Gateway with clientless access.
  • App Controller requires the rewriting of HTML traffic.
  • Receiver for Web requires that certain cookies are not proxied through NetScaler Gateway.

If you create clientless access policies for Receiver and Receiver for Web, bind the Receiver policy to the virtual server before you bind the Receiver for Web policy. When you bind the Receiver policy, set a lower priority number to make sure that this policy takes precedence over the Receiver for Web policy.

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, expand NetScaler Gateway > Policies and then click Clientless Access.
