iRule Help: Pool Selection on VIP port basis

Pardon me if this one already posted... I need to configure VIP to listen on traffic on port range say "2000 to 5000" and the back end physical servers are listening on port 2000 to 5000. I created VIP with IP say*AllPorts , and I created Pool with Member IP say*AllPorts and applied following iRule which was posted in DEV Central Forum





if { [ [[TCP::local_port] >=2000] and [[TCP::local_port] <=5000]] }


{ pool Exchange2010_CAS_POOL }


else { reject }





When I see statistics on F5, I see traffic coming in and OUT of VIP and I see traffic coming IN to Pool Member but I dont see traffic going OUT of Pool Member. I am not sure what is wrong? Is the iRule is incorrect or the Pool member should not be configured that way....Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Do you have SNAT enabled on the VS? What do you see in a tcpdump filtering on the VS or pool addresses (tcpdump -ni 0.0 -Xs0 host or host



    Also, if you want a quick reply, you could open a case with F5 Support.
