Unanswered Question

We have ACE4710 and I configured ACE for load balancing and SSL terminator with users authentication. All users authenticate when browsing https://x.x.x.x url and all work well. But I want users to authenticate with SSL certificate when browsing only special url on my server- for example when user browse url https://x.x.x.x/Test no need to be authenticated, but when browse url https://x.x.x.x/testSSL/ need to authenticate.

Can you post any example and help me to do this.

Thanks in advance.

I saw that "policy-map multi-match VIP_POLICY" match only first L4 class, and no second. Is it possible match two policies with "or" rule
