The examples in this section demonstrate how to configure rewrite to perform various useful tasks. The examples occur in the server room of Example Manufacturing Inc., a mid-sized manufacturing company that uses its Web site to manage a considerable portion of its sales, deliveries, and customer support.
Example Manufacturing has two domains: example.com for its Web site and email to customers, and example.net for its intranet. Customers use the Example Web site to place orders, request quotes, research products, and contact customer service and technical support.
As an important part of Example's revenue stream, the Web site must respond quickly and keep customer data confidential. Example therefore has several Web servers and uses Citrix NetScaler appliances to balance the Web site load and manage traffic to and from its Web servers.
The Example system administrators use the rewrite features to perform the following tasks:
Each of these tasks requires that the system administrators create rewrite actions and policies and bind them to a valid bind point on the NetScaler.
