Performing URL rewriting with the CSM

Hi All,

Wondering if the CSM can be used to perform any rewriting of URLs. The configuration guide dosn't seem to indicate if this is possible.

For example, could a request from a client to http://muso.monash.edu.au/vista/... be transparently rewritten to http://muso.monash.edu.au/webct/... ?

thanks

Re: Performing URL rewriting with the CSM

No loadbalancer does url rewrite.

However, you can intercept some url and create an http redirect to a different location.

For example you can create a url match to catch /vista/* requests and create a redirect service to /webct/%p.

There is an example on how to configure redirect at :

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps2706/products_configuration_example09186a00802877f6.shtml

The result would be exactly what you need.

The client will be transparently redirected to the correct page.

The only difference is that the client will be able to see the correct url.

Gilles.
