ACE http https rewrite/redirect on same port

I am trying to do the following:

http://test.foo.com:8000 -> https://test.foo.com:8000

I am able to get redirection to work if the ports are different.  For example, I am able to get http://test.foo.com:8000 to redirect to https://test.foo.com:8010.  The SSL traffic is then terminated on the ACE, and traffic is sent back to the real servers on port 80.  However, when I try to use the same port, it seems to get stuck in a "redirection loop".  It is as if the first match VIP for port 8000 will try to hit that same redirection port the second time.

Is there a way, with SSL termination on the ACE, to have the http rewrite to https on the same port?

ACE http https rewrite/redirect on same port

Hi,

What you are trying to do is not possible. You cannot have two different protocols being received in the same IP and port, because then, the ACE (or any other load-balancer or server) will not know which of the two to use for each of connection.

If you really want to keep the same port, you should redirect to a different IP address.

Regards

Daniel
