1-Click helps you
to launch an instance of NetScaler VPX on AWS, quickly as compared to other
launching methods, with the default options. After the instance is launched on
AWS, you can modify these options by using either the AWS CLI or the AWS GUI.
options include the following elastic network interfaces (ENIs) for the
Interface—Associates a subnet for management related traffic. You add the
NetScaler management IP (NSIP) address to this subnet.
Interface—Associates a subnet for the client-access (user-to-NetScaler)
traffic. You add one or more virtual IP (VIP) addresses on this subnet.
Interface—Associates a subnet for server-access (NetScaler-to-server)
traffic. You add subnet IP (SNIP) addresses on this subnet.
Before you begin
launching an instance of NetScaler VPX on AWS, consider the following points :
- For security reasons, none
of the elastic IP addresses are attached to the ENIs of the NetScaler VPX
instance launched by using 1-Click. This means that the NetScaler VPX instance
(including the management IP address) is not reachable from outside the AWS
Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). If your VPC uses a Virtual Gateway or other method
to provide a VPN access to the VPC, you can administer the instance by using
the IP address of the network interface in the management subnet. If you do not
have VPN access to your VPC, Citrix recommends that you set up a jump box
instance within the VPC, and then use this as the source for accessing or
managing other instances within the VPC. For instructions to create an SSH jump
- Three default security
policies are created. A policy each is attached to the management, public and
private interfaces, respectively.
- The security policy for the
management interface allows traffic from a set of ports.
- The security policies for
the public and private interfaces block all the traffic to or from these
interfaces. You can later modify these security groups to filter the desired
