utility includes a wizard that helps you to easily configure a CloudBridge
Connector tunnel between a NetScaler appliance in a datacenter and NetScaler
VPX instances on the SoftLayer enterprise cloud.
When you use the
wizard of the NetScaler appliance in the datacenter, the CloudBridge Connector
tunnel configuration created on the NetScaler appliance, is automatically
pushed to the other endpoint or peer (the NetScaler VPX on SoftLayer) of the
CloudBridge Connector tunnel.
Using the wizard of
the NetScaler appliance in the datacenter, you perform the following steps to
configure a CloudBridge Connector tunnel.
- Connect to the Softlayer
enterprise cloud by providing the user log on credentials.
- Select the Citrix
XenServer that is running the NetScaler VPX appliance.
- Select the NetScaler VPX
- Provide CloudBridge
Connector tunnel parameters to:
- Configure a GRE Tunnel.
- Configure IPsec on the GRE
- Create a netbridge, which
is a logical representation of the CloudBridge connector, by specifying a name.
- Bind the GRE Tunnel to the
You can monitor the performance of CloudBridge Connector tunnels on a NetScaler appliance by using CloudBridge Connector tunnel statistical counters. For more information about displaying CloudBridge Connector tunnel statistics on a NetScaler appliance, see Monitoring CloudBridge Connector Tunnels.
