I've been given the task of setting up new rules for load balancing FTP servers. These servers will be available internally as well as externally to our network. We do a great deal of business critical FTP transfers among our customers. So the plan is to place multiple (at least two for now) FTP servers with a backend shared storage resource. I've configured a simple L3 rule to do this:
add service FTP_DMZ
vip address 192.168.66.23
But the FTP session does not reach the server. I can FTP to the real address of the server through the LB (a 11501 running 8.10.4.01). I cannot to the VIP.
Any help? I have tried the APP FTP-CONTROL, but that does not change the situation.
Thanks in advance for any input.
