I'm brand new to F5 have spent a good 6-8hours playing around with it and have a vague understanding of where everything is. My question is how do I set up a reverse proxy.
server1 = http://192.168.0.44:8080 server2= http://192.168.0.104
I want server2 to reverse proxy to server1 i.e when i enter http://192.168.0.104 in the browser i want the web application on http://192.168.0.44:8080 to show up. How do i achieve this with F5?
A standard F5 virtual server is probably what you're looking for. You would create a pool with a member of 192.168.0.44:8080 and a virtual server with the destination of 192.168.0.104 using that pool as it's default pool. Make sure to enable SNAT automap in the virtual server.
Try that out and maybe watch the free f5 training intro to understand some of the concepts.
Dave already answered the right solution...
Of course, I hope 192.168.0.104 is not F5 Self IP or Management IP but an IP assigned only for the virtual server.
