How to setup a Citrix NetScaler 11.1 VPX in Microsoft Azure, including NetScaler Gateway (ICA Proxy) configuration
In addition to my previous blogpost, How to Build your Citrix Disaster Recovery environment in Microsoft Azure, and of course, when you need to proceed the NetScaler setup in Azure for your own Citrix (hybrid) environment, I created this blog article, to show you how to get familiar with the configuration steps that must be done, to configure NetScaler 11.1 VPX in the Microsoft Azure Cloud and configure the NetScaler Gateway steps for ICA Proxy – remote access.
One major configuration limitation, that you definitely need to be known with, is that the default ports, 443 and 80 are in use for management usage, and cannot be changed or used for other virtual servers (VIPs). To work around this limitation, you need to NAT/reverse proxy ports from the internet to the VM’s network interface, I will configure this by making use of the Azure Load Balancer functionality, the outside port 443 listens to port 4443 on the inside (like picture below).
Another option I would like to mention is the SSL VPN – NetScaler gateway feature. You can use this to replace the Azure point-to-site vpn option, to provide users a more simple way to connect to the Azure vNet network, by a uniform (custom) web portal.
