ACE URL rewrite query

I have a question on URL rewrites on an incoming connection to an ACE. I've looked through the Cisco documentation and other related posts in the

Support forum, but have been unable to find a recent answer.

The scenario we have is; an incoming http connection of http://test.com:8099 hits the ACE, what I'd like to do is rewrite this to

http://test.com/test.html:8099 and then forward the request to the RServers.

My understanding so far is that rewrites can only be performed on the host portion of the request and not the URI, and for the above, we'd probably need to

configure the ACE to perform a redirect back to the client for the new URL. Is someone able to confirm my understanding?

For reference, the ACE modules are running Version A4 (2.1)

Thanks,

Dan

ACE URL rewrite query

Hi Dan,

You are totally right, the rewrite only affects the host part of the URL.

You would have two options to overcome this situation:

  • Instead of using a URL rewrite, implement a redirection to the new URL on the ACE
  • Configure your web servers to return the "test.html" page when the root URL is requested.

Regards

Daniel
