packet flow same subnet client, vip, snip, server

Good morning, 


we have this scenario: 

- client with subnet: 192.168.1.x

- vip with subnet: 192.168.1.x

- snip with subnet: 192.168.1.x

- server with ip 192.168.1.x

I would like to make sure that having on the same subnet  client, vip, snip, and server can't create some communication problem between those elements.

There should not be any problem. Citrix ADC (NetScaler) is a proxy. The client will connect to the virtual server, the ADC will use it's SNIP to connect to the backend server. So there will be 2 TCP connections: Client to VIP, SNIP to server.


This is a usual deployment in lab environments.
