How is the best way to allow ports from a certain server talk both ways to devices inside

We have a device that talks initially to our systems via a port (say 8989) after the connection it will talk on ports 1024-max port. The connections can be initiated from within the f5 systems or from outside the f5. What is the best method of accomplishing this?

Hi Eric, I'm guessing you can try to create 2 virtual servers with the same IP, one listening on port 8989 (which will serve first request) and one listening on "any" port. I'll suggest to try disabling "port translation" flag in this second VS. Is persistence required? How many servers are you load balancing? Try this solution with a single server first, and if you need to load balance this I'd suggest trying to manage persistence via an iRule with some client hash method.
