Hi - i am trying to do a FIX message validation on F5 - and in case of invalid client IP - i want to send a FIX response back .
currectly if the IP address of a FIX login Message does not match the client ID associated in a Datagroup - the F5 rejects the connection and does TCP::close
can i respond with a Reject FIX message ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
@awan_m My missunderstanding on this one. You are referring to the FIX protocol. Sadly I'm not sure if you can because I believe the only events available for FIX are the following.
It is possible that something else can be done that I'm not aware since I haven't had to opportunity to work with FIX but just purely based on documentation you might not be able to.
I've seen that the BIGPROTO::enable_fix_reset iRule command is capable of enabling and disabling reset of FIX protocol connections.
Documentation refers to TCP resets being sent (while enabled) when BIGIP detects hash collision on ePVA offloading of FIX flows: https://clouddocs.f5.com/api/irules/BIGPROTO__enable_fix_reset.html
