Cisco 3550 - Fa0/1 -----------à Local Director (User Facing Interface)



VLAN 20 - 192.168.2.x /24


Cisco 3550 - Fa0/10 ----------------à Local Director (Server Facing interface)

Cisco 3550 - Fa0/11 ---------------à Server1

..

Hello,

Have you tried using port numbers, say 443, 80, or 23 in the configs (virtual, real, and bind) depending on how you are trying to connect?

Thanks for your reply.


Yes, I tried it for port 23...but unsuccessful.... in place of Server I used a router (assigned only IP address & Default route to its ethernet interface. no other config on that)

Have you tried something like this:

route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.x.x

virtual 192.168.2.10:23:0:tcp is

real 192.168.2.11:23:0:tcp is

bind 192.168.2.10:23:0:tcp 192.168.2.11:23:0:tcp

I've only touched the Local Director a few times but I think you need to consider the following:


1- The Local Director is a bridge. Having the user facing interface in VLAN10 and in network 192.168.1.0, and the server interface in VLAN 20 and in network 192.168.2.0 seems like there may be a conflict there. Consider having the user interface and server interface in the same VLAN.


2- Again, the Local Director acts like a bridge. Having both interfaces of the LD on the same switch and acting as a bridge between the users and the servers will probably not work. Consider having the LD user interface attached to the network switch and then a separate switch just for the servers attach to the other interface of the LD. All traffic to and from the servers will then have to pass through the LD.


Hope this helps
