Netscaler http to https redirect , Firewall port and Responder policy

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Question that may have been asked earlier but would request your kind help on this.


The request is to perform an http ---> https redirection using responder policy applied to a VPN gateway vserver 


From a firewall perspective, only rule enabled is from Source:Any to Destn:Gateway IP (public IP)  --Port 443 , teh first query is whether we need to add port 80 as well to this rule for the http traffic to be initiated through to the netscaler ?


The second query being , we have created the following 


Responder action: 


expression: "https://"+HTTP.REQ.HOSTNAME+"/vpn/index.html"

Response Status Code:302


Responder policy: 

Undefined-result action: Reset

Expression: HTTP.REQ.HOSTNAME.EQ("access.mycompany.com") 


Bound the policy to the VPN server 


While testing externally ..I type http://access.mycompany.com , expected to redirect to https://access.mycompany.com/vpn/index.html , this doesnt happen and I do not see a policy hit to the responder policy ?


Would be grateful if you could direct me if 

a) I need to open firewall port to be able to resolve http and 

b) Any changes that I need to do on the responder policy 

c) Any opther method by which I could achieve redirect


Many thanks
