Using the Source IP Address of the Client When Connecting to the Server

Jun 08, 2015

You can configure the NetScaler appliance to forward packets from the client to the server without changing the source IP address. This is useful when you cannot insert the client IP address into a header, such as when working with non-HTTP services.

For more information about configuring USIP globally, see "Enabling Use Source IP Mode."

To enable USIP mode for a service by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

set service <name> -usip (YES | NO)

Example

set service Service-HTTP-1 -usip YES

To enable USIP mode for a service by using the configuration utility

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Services, and open a service.
  2. In Advanced Settings, select Traffic Settings, and select Use Source IP Address.
