ACE SSL Termination

Unanswered Question

I have setup SSL termination on the ACE.

The client is prompt for the certificate, but when client accepts the certificate the web page is not displayed.

I look at the connection table (sh conn) and it shows that it is talking to the real server(s) on port 443, not 80.

It is my understanding with SSL termination, all of the encryption and decryption is done on the ACE, the backend to the server(s) is in clear text (http, not https).

Why do I see 443 in the connection table to the real server(s)?

what ACE software version do you have ?

Can we have a look at your config.

you need to specify the rserver port to be 80 in your serverfarm.

Something like this :

serverfarm host Test_SFARM

rserver Test1 80


rserver Test2 80
