ACE Module Reverse Proxy with URL rewrite

Hi All,

Try to configure ACE as reverse proxy for WebLogic server farm. But have a issue on Rewriting URL.

http://172.16.36.100/test1/ -> http://192.168.1.20:8080/test1/ This is Possible.

But, http://172.16.36.100/test1/ -> http://192.168.1.20:8080/test2/

T tried this with redirection server farm. redirection works but the cannot see the pages wich coming after the /test1/xxxxxxxxx.xxxx and redirection can experiance the client since URL change on browser.

Is there a any other logic?

Have anyone tried this before?

Thanks

Vira

Re: ACE Module Reverse Proxy with URL rewrite

You won't be able to do this on the ace. When using a redirect server you can preserve the path with the %p variable but in this case you want to rewrite part of the path

so

webhost redirection http://192.168.1.20:8080/test2%p

winds up being

http://192.168.1.20:8080/test2/test1/...

Yes, I tried with %p variable. It's not work.

But the datasheet said HTTP header manipulation is possible with ACE. This feature support only with SSL?

Thanks…..

Re: ACE Module Reverse Proxy with URL rewrite

you can manipulate the header...not the url.

Everything after the url can be modified, removed, added...

So if your server sends a redirect, you can intercept it and change the Location: header.

But again, you can't change the url.
