CSS Service IP not L2 connected, possible?

Hi,

I have a need to loadbalance and sticky to a service. The service however, is not the end content server (which resides on the internet), the service is a bunch of routers, which require to be loadbalanced for scalability reasons.

Question:

Is it possible to configure a service where the service IP is a router IP and not the 'real' IP. Bear in mind here that the router will send the traffic to the internet and not back to CSS. The return path will be the reverse.

The required network layout is like below

Client---CSS---Rtr(1..x)----FWLB device----Web

Thanks

Alan

Alan,

You need somehow to make sure the response goes back to the CSS.

This can be done with client-nat if necessary.

Also, if you want to forward the traffic to the router without nating the destination ip, you will need to configure 'type transparent' under the service definition.

This setup is possible to do.

Gilles.
