I'm looking for some guidance/thoughts on a problem I'm coming across. I have an SSL termination configuration as follows:
Client to VIP:80 does redirect to VIP:443
Client to VIP:8080 does redirect to VIP:8443
Client to VIP:443 load balances to Real:80
Client to VIP:8443 load balances to Real:8080
On the real server I'm running apache on 80 and tomcat on 8080.
Apache handles the main site while Tomcat handles java applets/authentication/etc.
The problem we're encountering is when apache needs to hand off to tomcat and the reverse. What's the best way to accomplish this while maintaining the connection to the same real server. What is happening is that the ACE is re-load balancing the request to a different real.
