CSS 11506 running

Unanswered Question
Oct 1st, 2009

Can you tell me if this will work?

keepalive type encrypt

keepalive method get

keepalive port xxxx

Specifically, what can I do for a layer 5 KAL for HTTPS in a service? I hate to compare these things but I know on an F5 I can do an https get.

These are 11506 running

Thanks for anything you can advise,

I have this problem too.

You can definitely setup the CSS to perform a URI keep-alive over HTTPS.

keepalive type http encrypt

However, in order for this configuration to work properly your CSS must contain the SSL module as the service will need to be setup as a "type ssl-accel-backend". This will allow the CSS to encrypt the keep-alive request and decrypt the servers response using the cert/keys defined within the backend-server configuration within the ssl-proxy-list.

Does your CSS contain an SSL module?
