Getting F5 LTM to deliver WebSphere 6.1 Applications
I know that there are numerous posts concerning F5 SSL offloading and WebSphere, however, I have tried everything and I am coming up short.
I am using F5 to deliver a Maximo 7 application residing on WebSphere 6.1.
client <---ssl--->F5<----nonssl--->IBM HTTP Server with Plugin<--nonssl--->WebSphere
When I go through the F5 SSL virtual server I am able to get a login page, however, I am not able to login.
As per a previous post on dev central I tried the following IBM document
I configure the customer header HTTPS-FRONT-END: on WebSphere and on F5 I configured the Request Header Insert of HTTPS-FRONT-END:.
I notice on the latest F5 deployment document
mentions setting Redirect Rewrite to Match.
I have had issues similar to this with WebLogic but configuring the correct Request Header Insert resolved the problem.
