Hi all,

 

I'm pretty new to Irules and i've a request to create an irule that looks at the FQDN and based on that forwards traffic to a pool member on a specific port. For example :

443.xyz.com to pool X on port 443

444.xyz.com to pool X on port 444

445.xyz.com to pool X on port 445

 

etc.

 

How can I achieve this ?

Hello, you should create 3 different pools, one for each port. For forwarding traffic to the specific pool by hostname, I recommend using a policy.

I hope I have helped you.

HI Angelo,

 

Well the main thing is that we don't want to build all of these pools because we don't know the FQDN that they er going to be using.
