Redirecting Non-http traffic

Gilles,

we are running GSLB between two sites.

Is it possible to do redirect non-http traffic(Ex- SFTP service) when there is a failure of the services at one site.

Thanks in advance

Re: Redirecting Non-http traffic

there are 3 ways to do redirect.

1/ using the HTTP redirect feature which is only possible with HTTP

2/ you configure the remote site vip address as a service on your local CSS.

Use this service as backup with a group to do client nat to guarantee that the response will come back to the CSS.

3/ if you have GSLB, site A should start responding to dns requests with site B vip address. Assuming you have probe to detect a rule is down.
