Does anyone have a clear example of a full configuration including the "portmap vip-address-range" Command?  I've done plenty of searches and the best I can come up with is a description along with the CLI command.  No where can I find a full configruation example of a CSS using the portmap.

Here is the information I have


Here is a configuration example of a Source Group with 3 VIP addresses:
(config)# group ftpgroup
(config-group[ftpgroup])# vip address 192.168.1.10
(config-group[ftpgroup])# portmap vip-address-range 3
(config-group[ftpgroup])# add destination service ftp-svc1
(config-group[ftpgroup])# add destination service ftp-svc2

(config-group[ftpgroup])# active



But, the whole concept of range on the CSS is not very helpful.

If you want to use a range, you need to apply the same range command to vip, group AND service.

Then, when a user comes to vip range X, we select service range X, and group range X....the same index in each.

Thanks for the comment.  Yes, I'll gladely say the documentation available for this command

is VERY lacking.  I did figure out what your saying on my own, but it took some time.


Thanks again.
