LTM as a proxy
Hello, this is my first post so hope you can assist me ...
This is my scenario (using LTM version 9.4.8):
I need my LTM to configure as a full proxy for the following traffic flow:
Currently I have a VIP on port 81 configured on F5. The traffic is being loadbalanced to the pool behind the F5.
I need to divert some of the traffic (7 URL's) straight to the Internet bypassing the servers and configure my F5 to act as a full proxy (traffic needs to come back) before it returns back to the source.
I have VIP and SNAT configured fine but I am having some issues with the iRule,
I need to make sure that the traffic coming on port 81 will be inspected (using HTTP REQUEST) and if the specific URI string will be found (let's assume it is facebook.com) then this traffic needs to be forwarded on port 80 straight to facebook.
I was thinking to create a pool with a pool member for each of the URL's but I don't want to use the IP address for the nodes, i would have to use hostnames. Not really sure how to do that.
Can you please advise? Or maybe there is a better solution I could use?
