301 redirect code on ACE WAF

Unanswered Question
Apr 21st, 2009

Does anyone know if it is possible to setup a virtual web app on ACE WAF such that it would return a 301 code back to the client, and not send the request back to the internal destination server?

All I would need it to do is see the URI for the root of the site, and then send the 301. I would prefer to not do this on the backend server if I don't have to.

Thanks for any help.

I have this problem too.

Can't you do it on ACE or the LB that's in front of the WAF?

We have a pair of WAF's, and am not sure how such a redirect would be done...WAF acts as a reverse proxy, and not an actual server.

There is a standalone ACE WAF being used in this situation (dual manager/gateway). There is no LB in front or behind and that's why I was asking.

We could of course do the 301 from the backend server, but I don't wanna. ;)
