Newbie here with F5. I want to set up a redirect a site but want to keep the same URL of the site.
For example if I go to:
it will redirect content to:
but I want the URL still stay the same on users' browsers http://site1.com/subsite1 and the content is from http://site2.com/subsite2
As another word, on user's browser, the URL still shows http://site1.com/subsite1, but the content is from http://site2.com/subsite2
is it possible? I did some researching, seems like what i'm looking for is a Reverse Proxy Redirect? I'm not so sure.
Could you help me to create this rule?
Thank you so much in advance
It is very possible, although it can cause weird issues depending on how the backend application is coded. Your best bet is to look into rewrite profiles to rewrite incoming URLs (from the HTTP request header) as well as reponses sent back to clients (HTTP response header, HTML code, Java scripts, etc).
We've been discussing exactly this issue here.
Hi Stephane, so I'm reading the instruction from https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/products/big-ip_ltm/manuals/product/ltm-implementations-11-4-0/21.html
All I need is configure the "Creating a Rewrite profile to specify URI rules" part right? Do I need to do the Remove Tag part too?
I did the Rewrite profile part already, and then set it on the Virtual Server, but it doesn't work.
Can you give me some advice? Thanks
