Hello all, How are you ?
Well, i'm new to F5 product and here at DevCentral. I'm using LTM and ASM modules.
Im trying to do some configurations and exploring them to get used with it. I have a service endpoint URL and for now I just want F5 to be a proxy receiving the service's request and fowarding it to web service adress.
I tried to do it but without success, I read F5 white papers and tutorials but i didn't get it well.
Could someone give me a hand on this?
Thanks in advance.
Maybe i was not too clear.... I just want F5 for now to receive the requests and foward it to the backend server wich service is exposed.
Reading white papers again, I see that first of all I need to create a VLAN, but where do I make the mapping from F5 to my web server?
Let me see if I'm rigth. The virtual server to F5 is my web service server ? So how will it understant that i want that especific request to be forward to it ?
Here is the senario:
I have a web service endpoint... lets suppose that it is like: http://192.168.14.129:8002/myservice
I don't want clients acessing it directly... So i would like to "virtualize" it... the goal is I want the client sending the request to F5 in another IP and Port and F5 fowarding it to the real web service endpoint.
I think it is not very hard to do but as I'm newbie at F5 modules, I'm taking a beating trying to do it. Getting back to vlans.... which are the best pratices now a days? I think that is possible to acomplish my goal with just one vlan but what do you guys advise me?
PS: I'm using smith Big IP Virtual Edition.

OK, so you have a fresh, licensed install with nothing configured?
Yes, that is it.
