I am fairly new to the f5 and I'm trying to figure out how to do redirection when using url with port number then hitting a pool it would load balance one of the servers. I've already created the nodes with port numbers 10400 and 10000. I've create a pool with those nodes and create http and https VIP. What I'm trying to do is when a user type in http://xyz:10400/test/ or https://xyz:10400/test/ or http://xyz:10000/test/ or https://xyz:10000/test/ it will load balance using those pools. When I do that I keep getting the page cannot be displayed.
Going to the servers directly work:
But if I go using the VIP it doesn't work:
You can create 2 VIP or a wild card VIP:
First alternative, you can create 2 VIPS, supose xyz ip is 188.8.131.52:
Other alternative is to have only one VIP:
you have to disable "Address translation" and "port translation" in VS settings.
Additional as you set a wildcard VS you can set an irule to allow only port 10000 and 10400.
Let me now if you need more details or help for implementation.
I didn't realize that the service port on the VIP needed to be changed also to 10400 I thought you have to use only 80 or 443 for the service port because the nodes I put in were using the 10400. Your answer solved my problem thank you for the quick response.
Hey youssef I got this to work for https but how would it work for http to https redirection?
