  • Let me give detailed example...



    1) Client want to access the URL: (Which is configured on External F5 LTM as a Forwarding VS VIP: "VIP1", i.e note that there is SNAT Pool configured on this VIP)


    Client IP address is:



    2) When client want to access the above URL it will hit the above Forwarding VS VIP: "VIP1", i.e 443) and the request need to be redirected to another VIP: "VIP2", i.e 7777) which is configured on Internal LTM.



    NOTE: External LTM and Internal LTM are two different LTMs
  • can you configure vip1 as standard or performance l4 virtual server and set as its pool?
  • We already have VIP1 configured as a Forwarding VS on port 443 and we can not modify it
  • can you list vip1 configuration?
