BigIP-VE BYOL in AWS Http -> Https Redirect via Elastic IP

BigIP-VE 13.0 HF3 Multi-Nic

I am currently trying to POC something in AWS that their load balancing solutions can't accommodate. One thing i am having an issue with is the ability to do an HTTP to HTTPs redirect via Elastic IP.

Topology:

Elastic IP -> Private Vip IP on F5 Interface -> Snat -> EC2 Instance

Issue:

http://eip does not redirect to https://eip

What Does Work:

http://privateip DOES redirect to https://privateip

Tried:

I have tried the built in redirect rule i have also tried a redirect irule redirects to the FQDN that is pointed at the elastic ip.

I believe this has something to do with the fact that Elastic IP is really a one to one nat to that private IP that lives on the F5.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you everyone!

I have resolved this issue. Newb mistake.

For anyone that has issues like i have experienced make sure your using igw for your default gateway not a nat gateway in your AWS Route Table.
