CSS Design question

Hi All,

I have a couple of questions around the CSS 11501 would be grateful if any gurus out there cud shed more light, here goes;

-Does the CSS support bridging between 2 vlans? In a similar way to the CSM. What command might be used to achieve this?

Thanks.

Kind Regards,

Re: CSS Design question

The CSS will bridge physical interfaces that belong to the same circuit vlan.

Nothing special to do. Just configure the same vlan on 2 physical interfaces.

Thanks for your response Giles.

Gotcha, further more ... so if CSS is L-2 adjacent to the servers do the servers have to have loopbacks created for the VIP?

I wud assume this wud be required as the CSS will only be re-writting the MAC address? Can you please shed more light here as well.

Cheers

Re: CSS Design question

no, there is no need to configure a loopback on the server.

By default the CSS does a destination ip re-write/nat using the server ip.

Even if they are adjacent.

However, if you want to avoid the ip nating, you can change the service type to transparent-cache.

Gilles.
