According to our Support Engineers, you can resolve this issue by ensuring the secure browse option is enabled in the Netscaler Gateways session profile. Remember to select Tunneled to internal network on the Secure Web MDX policy. You also need to ensure that the DNS suffixes are added under NSG.
After that, restrict external traffic by navigating to NetScaler Gateway, and then to Virtual Servers. Then, choose the Virtual Server on the and click Edit.
Then, select “+” to access Policies.
Next, choose Traffic from the dropdown list.
Next, click continue.
Again click the “+” sign as seen below:

Then click Create as seen below:
Remember to click “+” to create a profile for this policy.
After this, enter the Traffic Profile’s name and choose the protocol as HTTP. This profile is for SSL and HTTP. Did you know that CVPN traffic is actually HTTP traffic in design, regardless of service type or destination port? Our Support Engineers would like to remind you to enter the Port number and IP address in the format of the Proxy Server. Then click create.
After that bind policy with a higher priority.
Next, create a traffic policy that skips proxy:
The priority for no proxy has to be lower.
In case you are still getting the same error, ensure the policy hits on NetScaler when website is accessed. Run these commands on NetScaler putty:
> shell # cd /var/nslog # nsconmsg -g pol_hits -d current
This confirms that the policy is hit. You can use trace to check the header value requested.
