Irule to keep the source IP in udp request

How do we preserve the source ip in udp request and forward the same to backend pool?

I can see that the LB ip in the request when the request comes to pool member but I want to keep the source IP when F5 forwarding the request to pool.

 

Thanks,

S

Don't set any address translation (no SNAT or SNAT Automap) on the UDP virtual server.

It's best to use a Performance Layer 4 virtual with Loose Init/Loose Close.

 

However, the pool member has to be able to respond directly to the source IP, or use the BIG-IP as the default Gateway.
