Multiple Ports for one Content in CSS

Dear All,

We configure a CSS11506 (v5.2) and the enduser wants to setup only one content (vip address) to support multiple services (such as http, https and DNS).

Since, in the configuration, we can only set one port in content rule. Is there any method to setup this requirement? Or we only need to create several content with the same VIP but for different services port?

Thank you very much!

Best Regards,


Cisco Employee

Re: Multiple Ports for one Content in CSS

2 possibilities.

Either you have only one content rule. In this case you must not specify a port and the CSS will listen on all ports.

Or you define mulitple content rules with the same Vip but different ports.

Re: Multiple Ports for one Content in CSS

take a look at the odcumentation regarding the way in which the css processes rules, you can have multiple rules with the same vip...just specify the separate tcp ports in each rule, making them layer 4 rules.

I would advise against an L3 rule, as there is an outstanding bug in the 5.00 and 5.03 releases regarding unexpected switch reboots when UDP hits a rule.
