F5 BIG-IP LTM pool no outbound traffic

Hello, I am trying to setup a new virtual server (port 80) on F5 BIG-IP. I can ping the VIP and all its member IP. I can ping to the self IP of the F5 from the member server. Service is http and it's running normaly when I'm accessing the server directly, but it gave me a blank page if I access it using the VIP.

 

When I check the pool statistics, it shows bits & packet IN but no bits & packets OUT. I am totally new into this BIG-IP thing, can someone please guide me as clear as possible of what I should do to get this working?

 

Thanks in advance πŸ™‚

cant really understand what you mean, can you be more specific in step by step? i actually dont really understand the basic F5 operation..thanks...

in virtual server properties, configure source address translation to automap.

The above solution worked

dear all,

 

thank you for your effort to help, but I managed to solve it. I dont know why but creating another self IP in same VLAN and check the floating IP options is what makes the magic possible :) I thought floating IP is used for failover between 2 BIG-IP (in my place we only use 1 BIG-IP), can someone explain about this?
