Why F5's send TCP RESET packets from a loopback address

Why do F5's send out TCP RESET packets to internet hosts from a local loopback address? :? Is there some known configuration issue or patch that my client may be unaware of which would correct this behavior?

    Hi John-



    Thank you for your inquiry and for using DevCentral.



    From what I can tell, this is really more of a BIG-IP technical support question. The DevCentral forum is designed to deal directly with iControl development questions.
