NetScaler 9.3 Service Protocol Type "ANY"

on a Citrix Netscaler 9.3 when you are creating a service and select the protocol type as "ANY"

Does this mean the port you list is not locked into ONE protocol but can use any of the listed protocols?

What is the best protocol type to use for a Load Balanced KDC Port 88 service (TCPor UDP)

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That is correct. This means when you tie that service to a vserver, any port on that vserver IP will be balanced to your backend servers unless you specify a backend port.

Create a service of Protocol: ANY and Port: 88
Create a vserver of Protocol: ANY and Port : 88
Bind the service to the vserver.


hope this helps.
