ACE: one-to-many port loadbalancing

I need to have the ACE do a kind of port load balancing within each real server in the server farm. This amounts to one incoming port and many outgoing port. Currently I can only see how to set one outbound port, how can I set many. The Alteons can do it, surely the ACE can too?

Re: ACE: one-to-many port loadbalancing

The only way would be to configure a real server inside the serverfarm for each port you one to use.

There is no range option.

You could use a script to create the config for you and then copy paste it into the ACE terminal window.

Re: ACE: one-to-many port loadbalancing

I'm looking into that now, but is it not the case that you con't configure 2 rservers with the same IP?

Re: ACE: one-to-many port loadbalancing

This isn't possible:

ace-2/C1(config)# rserver host Test1

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# ip address 10.1.1.1

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# inservice

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# rserver Test2

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# ip address 10.1.1.1

Error: Duplicate IP address or subnet

Is there something that can be done with PAT?

Sorry Gilles, I misunderstood.

Did you mean the following?

serverfarm Test

rserver Test1 1112

inservice

rserver Test1 1113

inservice

rserver Test1 1114

inservice

I think this will work...
