Citrix NetScaler VPX Release 10 released
Citrix NetScaler VPX version 10 provides the complete NetScaler Web application load balancing, acceleration, security and offload feature set in a simple, easy-to-install virtual appliance. IT organizations of any size can deploy NetScaler VPX on industry standard servers—on-demand—anywhere in the datacenter.
What’s new in NetScaler 10:
The Citrix NetScaler 10 release provides enhancements for the following NetScaler features.
The following AAA-TM feature enhancements are available in this release.
127-Character User Name and Password Support
The AAA-TM feature now supports user names and passwords up to 127 characters in length.
127-Character Support for RADIUS NAS ID
The AAA-TM feature now supports RADIUS NAS IDs (radNASid) up to 127 characters in length.
SAML 2.0 Consumer Support
The AAA-TM feature now accepts tokens in the Security Assertion Markup Language
(SAML), version 2.0. This feature enables you to configure single sign-on (SSO) on your
NetScaler appliance for users who log on through a third party authentication server
that supports SAML.
Enhanced NTLMv2 Support
AAA-TM now fully supports NTLMv2 for its single sign-on (SSO) feature. The NetScaler appliance attempts to connect by using NTLMv2 first, and only if that fails does it then attempt to fall back to NTLMv1. This support resolves outstanding issues with accessing Microsoft Share point servers that are part of a private network behind a AAA-TM SSO configuration.
The following AGEE enhancements are available in this release.
Apply the Citrix Receiver theme to the logon page
You can use the command line to overwrite the original Access Gateway logon page with the Citrix Receiver theme.
Enabling Access Interface Bookmarks
Access Gateway supports the following four services to enable bookmarks to appear in the Access Interface when users log on with Citrix Receiver: Enumeration, Check Protection, Ticketing, and Access.
The following AppExpert feature enhancements are available in this release.
Load Balancing Virtual Server Template Enhancements
