F5 to replace Netscaler

Hi EE,

If I wish to forego Citrix Netscaler , can I then simply create a virtual server load balancing port 443 with SSL offload on my F5 Big IP device using the traffic manager ? I tried searching the F5 and Citrix  knowledge base with no luck. Looking for any persons experienced in this area.

"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.

it depends...
which work NetScaler currently does for you.
If NS only work as reverseproxy without modifying the content this may be possible.
But NS can modify traffic APP depending. NS may set cookies, reorder webpages, Authenticate, ...
And fir you use XenApp over NS it does a lot for establishing the connection.
So you may have to configure many things.
