Does anyone have a clear definition of what the default service type of local does?


Is it simply to forward the matched traffic to the IP in the service, as a next hop?

you would need to configure the following :


type transparent-cache

I do not have a clear definition of the "local".

But the default for the CSS is nat vip ip address with service ip address and forward.

The destination ip will be changed, so this is not just a forward as next-hop.

Thanks once again Gilles,

If i wanted to just forward to next hop with no NAT on dst IP, what service type would be best to use?


Thanks
