- Deploying the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in from Active Directory
- Connecting with the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java
The NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java supports most TCP-based applications, but provides only some of the features of the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Windows or NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Mac OS X.
Users do not require administrative privileges on the user device to use the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java. For security reasons, you might want to require using this plug-in version for a particular virtual server, group, or user, regardless of which user device is used.
To configure NetScaler Gateway to install the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java on user devices, configure a session policy and then bind it to the virtual server, group, or user.
If users log on from a computer running Windows 7, the proxy server information is not set automatically in Internet Explorer. Users must manually configure the proxy server on the computer running Windows 7.
After creating the session policy, create an intranet application to define the interception mode for users who log on with the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java.
If you do not specify a source IP address and port number, NetScaler Gateway automatically uses 127.0.0.1 for the IP address and 0 for the port.
When users log on using the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java on a computer running Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, network traffic for TCP intranet applications is not tunneled. The HOSTS file is not updated automatically on computers running Vista and Windows 7. You must add the intranet applications manually to the HOSTS file.
On a Windows-based computer, you can edit the HOSTS file in Notepad or another text editor. If you edit the HOSTS file in Notepad, you must run Notepad as an administrator. Add the mapping entries for the intranet application for the NetScaler Gateway Plug-in for Java and then save the file.
