The next CSS questions I have is this.
I have a need to have multiple web servers (port 80)on the backend behind the CSS. Each have a unique web service and URL.
I need to be able to terminate all of the front end web connections via HTTPS. Now obviously each web instance will have its own signed cert.
Is there a way to use just one public VIP on the CSS that each web url resolves to, but configure the CSS based on the url to use the appropriate cert for each site and then proceed with the backend port 8o connection ? Or am I stuck having to use one public IP per https connection ?
Thanks for all the help so far. I have learned a ton on the CSS since yesterday. Definitely a sophisicated piece of hardware.
you can support multiple Domains on a single VIP but you need to use a different port number per domain (eg 443 for one appl , 886 for another) so you can differentiate and map them to the right cert.
Other wise you will need to associate unique vip to each application using same 443 port.
