Sending CSS Keepalives from a specific source address

Unanswered Question


I have a pair of CSS 11503s load balanacing connections across 2 servers in a remote data centre. To ensure that traffic passes back through the CSS, I am NATing the src addresses of client connactions - this seems to work fine as is.

When i configure keepalives (port 80) to the remote servers, they source from the interface address of the CSS, which the remote host has to route back to and fail - the services go down (even though they are quite happy!).

Can you tell me if there is a way of etheir doing some sort of source NAT for the KALs or specifying a source address?

Thanks vm.

you can't.

You need to guarantee that the server can communicate with the CSS.
