Dear experts, please, help to solve the problem related to the connection to the web GUI of F5 through the SSH tunnel with enabled port forwarding feature.
The reason why I need such thing - our external F5 is located in the DMZ zone and has totally another subnet.
Tunnel works, port forwarding for the 443 port also works.
Problem is when login like https://127.0.0.1:1212, F5 web gui successfully shows me login page.After this I input the login and password, submit them BUT after this I see redirecting procedure in the browser and as a result empty error page in the browser.
So I need to know for what kind of port need to make forwarding in the SSH tunnel to access F5 web gui successfully?
For internal F5 for debugging reasons checked netstat -an | grep (IP from which I establish connection) output in the F5 console when I connect to the direct IP of the BIG-IP device and see that during browsing F5 web gui there re a lot of connections to 443 port and that`s ok.
So I don`t understand the reason why the page in the browser after logging to the F5 outputs standart:"IE cannot display the page" error.
this is my post request/response header.
