Configuring traffic policies

The traffic policies that you configure for the resources in the Citrix Gateway Applications node control client connections to the application. You do not have to configure a rule for the resource. The rule created automatically when you create the resource. You only need to associate a request profile with the traffic policy. In the traffic profile, you specify parameters such as the protocol, application time-out, and file type association.

To configure traffic policies for a resource

  1. In the navigation pane of the GUI, expand AppExpert, and then click Access Gateway Applications.
  2. In the details pane, in the Traffic column, click the icon provided for the application, file share, intranet subnet, or resource for which you want to configure traffic policies.
  3. In the Configure Traffic Policies dialog box, do the following:
    • To specify an existing traffic policy, click Insert Policy, and then, in the Policy Name column, click the name of the policy.

    • To configure a new policy, click Insert Policy, and then, in the Policy Name column, click New Policy. In the Create Traffic Policy dialog box, in the Name box, after the underscore (_), type a name for the policy. Then, in Request Profile, either select an existing request profile or click New to configure a new request profile. You can also select an existing profile and then click Modify to modify the profile.

      For more information about configuring a traffic policy or profile, see Citrix Gateway.

    • To modify a policy that you have inserted, in the Policy Name column, click the policy name, and then click Modify Policy. To modify only the associated profile, in the Profile column, click the name of the profile, and then click Modify Profile.

    • To regenerate the priorities assigned to the policies, click Regenerate Priorities.

    • To specify a new priority value for a policy, in the Priority column, double-click the assigned priority, and then enter the value you want.

    • To unbind a policy, click the policy, and then click Unbind Policy.

  4. Click Apply Changes, and then click Close.
