service F0R-redirect
  ip address 1.2.1.3
  keepalive type none
  type redirect
  no prepend-http
  redirect-string "https://www.tptp.com/FoR/login/index"


we have application which is case sensitive and work only when the URL has FoR
e.g: http://www.tptp.com/FoR

now its getting difficult for users and they need it not to be case sensitive

on load balancer above is configured
the content rule forredirect the redirect works , user can login
but within the page there is a link which takes the user to https://www.tptp.com/PCM
there is a content rule as you can see when /PCM is seen to forward the requests to services xyz and abc. these are webservers
but once the user logs in with /for and clicks on the link which has /PCM browser just waits and eventually no response

to add further when the user intially type
www.tptp.com/PCM he get redirected by the server to www.tptp.com/FoR which is coded in the appliction, then within the page when he clicks on https://www.tptp.com/PCM it doesnt work

when the user logs in typing www.tptp.com/for and get redirected this time by the loadbalancer to www.tptp.com/FoR and clicks on the link within the page which has https://www.tptp.com/PCM it doesnt work

once i suspend the content forredirect and login using both www.tptp.com/PCM and www.tptp.com/FoR
the link within the page for https://www.tptp.com/PCM works

how do i get it working? the idea is that /for should be converted to /FoR by the loadbalancer and there shdnt be any loop as seen above
pls suggest

thnx

I have this problem too.

css has ssl module in

https is working as expected

when we type

www.tptp.com/FoR

it get redirected to https://www.tptp.com/FoR by the server behind the load balancer

ssl module is on load balancer

wht we want is when we type

www.tptp.com/for then this load balancer should redirect it to www.tptp.com/FoR

which it does with the new redirect service i created

what happens when the user logs in after the redirect , there is one link within the page which user clicks which

https://www.tptp.com/PCM this doesnt work and browser just waits

but

if you look at the config

there is a content rule to match /PCM and send it to serverfarm within the rule. this doesnt work

but once i remove the redirect i created for www.tptp.com/for

and type www.tptp.com/FoR and login, the same link https://www.tptp.com/PCM works

load does the ssl and it works fine

why is it not working when i enable the redirect on LB for www.tptp.com/for?
