VIP fails Telnet but responds to ICMP

F5A telnet 80 Trying


telnet: connect to address No route to host telnet:


Unable to connect to remote host: No route to host



F5A ping


PING ( ) 56(84) bytes of data.


64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=2.77 ms


64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=0.990 ms



virtual vs_80 { translate address disable translate service disable pool pool80 destination ip protocol tcp persist persist80 profiles fastl4_80 {} vlans 80 enable }



Pool members are showing as - inactive down and not responding to telnet on port 80.



However, memebrs are pinging from F5.



Any ideas..what route is missing here when VIP is pinging?
