CSS1500 - Problem with "none web application"

Unanswered Question

I need help. I'm trying to configure css (content & service) to load-balance a standard tcp application who works on port 911 BUT it's not a web application. The VIP binded on content answers to ping but not to telnet on port 911 (I perform telnet just to test the application). If I configure an URL, the VIP address answers but, like it's not for web, I'm not suppose to have any URL to enter.

What's the problem?

** My service is alive.

service Alarmes-1

ip address

keepalive type tcp

protocol tcp

port 911

keepalive frequency 15

keepalive retryperiod 15


content ALARMES

vip address

add service Alarmes-1

protocol tcp

port 911

when you configure a url you just forces the css to spoof the connection and respond to client SYN on behalf of the server.

If you do not get a response with a layer 4 rule [the one you have configured without the url] it's only because the server does not respond, because the server response does not come back through the CSS.

Sniff the traffic on the server to see what is going on.
