is the server expecting http traffic on port 7777 ?

Changing the destination port is simple.

But the CSS will not decrypt the traffic just because you changed the port.

So, do you also need to have the traffic decrypted ? If yes, do you have an ssl module on your css ?

thanks for reply

but i have one more question

Is it possible to pass encryted traffic through css to the server which is also support ssl without using ssl module.

I mean to say is it possible to use css only for load balancing for ssl sessions between client and server

Yes it is possible, you just need a content rule listening for SSL traffic and balancing to the servers, also you need to apply the command "application ssl" on the rule.

Now, as Gilles mentioned before, if you want that traffic to go the the server in port 7777, then the server needs to be expecting encrypted traffic on that port.

Hope it helps!!
