We would like to place the working public URL behind the F5. The current connection works similarly to a firewall NATing a public IP address to a private one before sending it to the server. We placed F5 between the server and firewall. On the Firewall, a new route has been added and on F5 we have new VIP and pool. Both VIP and Pool are active. However, we are unable to hit the page by saying "ERR_CONNECTION_RESET". The logs indicate that the connection from the F5 NAT IP to the server was broken down using a TCP connection with a duration of 0:00:00 bytes 1697 TCP Reset-O from the F5_Interface.
I added the port 443 as the pool monitor, and the logs indicate that the monitor connection teardown was successful. I also attempted to telnet using port 443 to this public IP address, and that also worked. Please, if anyone can help me with this.

@NN If you can please provide your topology with what you have described above, the F5 configuration for the Virtual Server (VS) and anything configured in it. The configuration for the VS should be it, any profiles such as tcp or SSL profiles, pool configuration, and any irules or traffic policies that you might have configured. My best guess currently is that the F5 is not the gateway for the servers you are balancing to so you most likely have to turn on SNAT but that's just a guess without knowing your topology or the F5 configuration.
