ACE Probes for authentication to imaps, smpts or pop3s servers

Dear all,

we have the demand to do health checks using authentication for servers running SSL-encrypted services like imaps, smpts or pop3s. Has someone implemented tcl scripts for that ? Unfortunately the "SSL_PROBE_SCRIPT" provided by Cisco does only do a "Client Hello". Maybe it is possible to enhance that script in order to test authentication ?

Thank you very much in advance.

The TCL script does not have SSL functionalities.

The script stops after the client/server hello because it can't do encryption/decryption.

So, there is no way to achieve what you need.

Dear Gilles,

thank you very much for your reply. This answers my question.

But ... I would like to turn this into a feature request, because I believe this demand is not that much out of common. There already is a https probe which works in a similar way, so it should be easy for Cisco to add probes for common ssl-encrypting protocols or - even better - add a generic ssl probe.

Best regards,

Bernd

Hello

I'm looking for exactly the same for https post xml. With every F5 box this could easily be implemented.

Would be great to get that functionality.
