Citrix master browsing done by CSS ?

There is a customer that is using client and server Citrix. They use a feature called master browsing where there is a server that receive connection request from client (it is the master browser) and then answer to the client with embedded the ip address of one of the server farm.

May CSS be configured to replace in anyway this "master browser" feature ?

Thanks for any reply

could you be more descriptive of how the client connects to the server and how the ip address is embedded.

What protocols are being used ?

The protocol used is HTTP with port 80.

Client make a request to a server called NFUSE with a particular address. The server then redirect this request to another server. This server answer to the NFUSE server which then redirect the answer to the client. The answer has still the NFUSE server as source address but embedded in the HTTP data there is also the address of the server where the packet has been redirected. I got also a sniffer capture that explain clearly this flow.
