NetScaler Gateway operates as follows:
When users type the web address, they receive a logon page where they enter their credentials and log on. If the credentials are correct, NetScaler Gateway finishes the handshake with the user device.
If the user is behind a proxy server, the user can specify the proxy server and authentication credentials. For more information, see Enabling Proxy Support for User Connections.
The NetScaler Gateway Plug-in is installed on the user device. After the first connection, if users log on by using a Windows-based computer, they can use the icon in the notification area to establish the connection.
