Microsoft Officer Communicator with irule




During my current environment, I need to setup the Microsoft Office Communicator server that put after F5 virtual server. For the user who connect to F5 virtual server, I need to create port 8057 to let the traffic pass through.



I have few enquries about it.



If the traffic need be routed back to the particular user that initiate the Microsoft Office Communicator connection (launch office communicator), do I need to create irule to maintain its persistency?


How to write that irule?


Is that any template can provide to me?



Thank you for the prompt reply.

    Not having looked at ms communicator traffic, is this a bi directional connection requirement? Does the server need to open a separate connection to the client (Like ftp does). If so, it probably wont work unless you dont snat it


    But i suspect its just a simple tcp connection from client to server. In which case no special irule required for the connection to be opened and data to flow



  • If you mean by persistence that you want each client to get back to the same pool member he was directed to after establishing his/her connection this can be accomplished by selecting a persistence profile and there's no need to an iRule.



    To select a persistence profile: go to virtual server -> Resources tab. Then select a default persistence profile.



    I hope this is what you are looking for.
