CSS11500 - Can CSS load balance non-http traffic on port 80

Hi - I'm trying to configure a content rule that matches port 80 and then load balances the traffic to some servers on a different port.

The doumentation says that the default application type is http. I cannot change the application type as the application is bespoke. Will this affect how the CSS processes the traffic if it is non-http.

Many Thanks in advance

the application type comes into play only for L7 rules. So, if you do not ask the CSS to analyse the traffic (ie: http cookie loadbalancing), then you can loadbalance whatever protocol on port 80.

Just make sure it stays a L4 rule.
