Can anyone help me on to do it? Please I'm new on using F5 BIG-IP. Thank you in advance 🙂

Question:

  1. How to configure my node server w/ web app locally created (Ex. File Folder w/ index.html) to be used on my F5 BIG-IP and show it specifically.
  2. Is there any video on how to configure it?

 

Regards,

Renato

Hi Renato - welcome to the world of F5! 🙂

Can you explain your request in a bit more detail? Are you talking about hosting a web app on the F5, or through the F5, and can you share any other details about the node server? Or are you talking about a redirect to a certain location? Any other details you can give that explains the situation a bit more will help.

Hi  

 

Thank you sir 😊 . For example i wanted to specifically show this page/webapp located at directory(C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Test Page) on my server1 when the client tried to access the given VS IP. Because in all tutorial they didn't show how to configure it.0691T00000Co04uQAB.pngRegards,

Aahh, ok, makes sense now. 😉

In order to do that, you first need to get a web server up and running on that Windows system, before you start putting it behind an F5 virtual server. Once the Windows server can show the website in a browser, will it be time to introduce the F5 VS.

 

Once you have a webserver running, have a look here: https://clouddocs.f5.com/training/community/adc/html/class1/class1.html - this is a basic lab for getting a load-balanced application to work through the F5. In the exercises they are talking about a different lab provider, but if you already have your systems setup, you can use your own.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi  ,

 

Thank you again for the reply sir, I really appreciate it 🙂 .. I'm a little confuse sir what do mean by web server up? did you mean my web application to run on my web server? I can actually run my webapp through web browser as shown on my screenshots below. Can you please provide an example much better a video sir so i can understand it much better 🙂 sorry i'm not good on programming that why i am having trouble on how to integrate my simple webpage/app. Or much better sir if it's ok with you if we can have a quick call session via teams/zoom/webex i will really appreciated it sir 🙂

Hi  ,

 

I already did what u have told me by running window server on my both nodes and now i can use my ip as the url to show my webpage, i just encountered a problem where my node status on my f5 is in "unknow" availability and not able to access my web app using my VS IP. I also tried to ping both my nodes vice versa and its pingable. Thanks you sir 🙂 0691T00000Co2tpQAB.png0691T00000Co2tkQAB.pngRegards,
