Citrix NetScaler – Creating a Web Interface site to integrate with the Access Gateway

You can use the Web Interface wizard on the NetScaler to provide access to local LAN or remote access users. To integrate the Access Gateway with the web interface running on the NetScaler, follow the steps below:

1. In the navigation pane, expand System, and then click Web Interface.

2. In the details pane, click Web Interface Wizard.

3. On the Introduction page, click Next.

4. On the Configure Web Interface Site page, specify the values for the following parameters, which correspond to parameters described in Parameters for configuring Web interface sites:

• Site Path (You cannot change the name of an existing Web interface site.)
• Site Type
• Published Resource Type
• Kiosk Mode

Select Gateway Direct Mode and specify values for the following parameters, which correspond to the following parameters:

• Authentication Point
• Access Gateway URL
• Add DNS Entry
• Trust SSL Certificate
• STA Server URL
• STA Server URL (2)
• Session Reliability

5. Click Settings to the right of the Access Gateway virtual server and specify values for the following parameters:

ICA Proxy – ON
Web Interface Addresshttp://127.0.0.1:8080/
The address above is used because we are running the web interface on the NetScaler and it uses port 8080.
Web Interface Portal Mode – NORMAL
Single Sign-on Domain – DOMAINNAME
• Enable the SSO to Web Applications option

Click OK on the Settings window.

6. When returned to the Configure Web Interface Site screen, click Next.

7. On the Configure XenApp/XenDesktop Farm screen, click Add to add an existing XenApp or XenDesktop farm.

8. In the Create XenApp/XenDesktop Farm or Configure XenApp/XenDesktop Farm dialog box, specify values for the following parameters:

• Name
• XML Service Addresses
• XML Service Port
• Transport
• Load Balance

After the appropriate values have been entered, click Create.

9. When returned to the Configure XenApp/XenDesktop Farm screen, click Next, and then click Finish.

The wizard creates an Access Gateway Session Policy based on the settings specified. Make sure that the appropriate session policies are set on the Access Gateway virtual server and then test remote connectivity.
