Re: Cannot ping Real IP, but can ping Virtual IP, what is the is

in routed mode, by default, the CSM does not allow client to connect directly to the servers.

To allow this traffic you need to create a vserver for the subnet with a predictor forward serverfarm

ie:

serverfarm route

no nat server

predictor forward

vserver vlanX

vip x.x.x.0 /24 any

serverfarm route

inservice
