After installing a Citrix NetScaler virtual appliance, you need to access it to configure the basic settings. Initially, you must access the NetScaler command line through the respective management application of the virtualization host (either Citrix XenCenter for Citrix XenServer or VMware vSphere client for VMware ESX) to specify a NetScaler IP (NSIP) address, subnet mask, and default gateway. The NSIP is the management address at which you can then access the NetScaler command line, through an SSH client, or access the configuration utility. You can use either of these access methods, or the console, to continue with basic configuration.
To access the configuration utility, type the NSIP into the address field of any browser (for example, http://<NSIP_address>). You need Java RunTime Environment (JRE) version 1.6 or later.
