CSS SSL Keepalives

Answered Question
Jan 11th, 2008

Is it possible to use SSL keepalives with a uri string? The config guide seems to say just SSL Hellos, but I would like confirmation.

Today we have this:

<b>service WWW-Test

keepalive type http

keepalive uri "http://XXX.XXX.197.28/efs/servlet/efs/whoami.jsp"

ip address XXX.XXX.197.28</b>

But would like something like this:

<b>service WWW-Test

keepalive type ssl

keepalive uri "https://XXX.XXX.197.28/efs/servlet/efs/whoami.jsp"

ip address XXX.XXX.197.28 </b>


I have this problem too.

This keepalive only sends a client HELLO and expect a server HELLO.

No data is actually encrypted or sent.

So, wto answer your question, no you can't specify a URI.

You could with the ACE module.
