To set up a NetScaler using the Configuration Utility, you need an administrative workstation or laptop on the same network as the NetScaler. If you prefer to connect the workstation directly to a NetScaler, use an Ethernet crossover cable.You also need version 1.4.2_04 or higher of the Java® runtime environment.

First-time configuration includes changing the NetScaler IP address, adding aMapped IP address, adding a default gateway, and changing the default administrator password. The Setup Wizard in the Configuration Utility can help you configure all these entities.A NetScaler is configured with a default IP address and associated netmask formanagement access.

The default IP is and the netmask is255.255.0.0. This default IP address is used whenever a user-configured value for a NetScaler’s IP address (NSIP) is absent. You need to specify at least one MIP when you configure a NetScaler for the first time. The NSIP and MIP need not belong to the same subnet.
