Configuring the Integrated Cache as a Forward Proxy

Aug 08, 2014

The integrated cache can service as a forward proxy device that passes requests to other NetScaler appliances or to other types of cache servers. You configure the integrated cache as a forward proxy by identifying the IP addresses of the cache server or servers. After configuring the forward proxy, the NetScaler appliance sends requests that contain the configured IP address on to the cache server instead of involving the integrated cache.

To configure the NetScaler as a forward cache proxy by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

add cache forwardProxy <IPAddress> <port>

To configure the NetScaler as a forward cache proxy by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Optimization > Integrated Caching > Forward Proxy, and add a forward proxy by specifying the IP address and port number.
