Does the ACE support the following.
We have a home grown application. Client-Server application. Application uses native TCP traffic. Client initiates the TCP connection to a TCP port on the Server. After three way TCP handshake, client writes application data to the socket. Server reads data off socket (does processing) and replies and writes response back onto the socket. Client reads response data off the socket and closes the socket.
We are looking at using Stunnel on the Client side to create a SSL connection to an ACE that will front end the real server. Client will connect via Stunnel that will connect to ACE.
ACE needs to perform the SSL termination and then after receiving the first data packet from the client via Stunnel. ACE should establish a TCP socket to the Real server and send data. This is not HTTP traffic. It is native TCP traffic. Does the ACE support this functionality or does the application on the Real server have to be HTTP?
