SSl Configuration.


A customer has an existing web solution pointing directly to his servers. His new requirement is to offload ssl termination onto a css 11501.

The customer only has one server. However he has multiple web sites pointing to different ports on the single server.

Can this configuration be carried out on a css using ssl?

More to the point how do I represent this configuration in a ssl-server proxy list. Can I have different digital certificates.

ie ?

ssl-proxy-list goose_n_moose

ssl-server 20

ssl-server 20 vip address

ssl-server 20 cipher rsa-with-rc4-128-md5 80

ssl-server 20 rsakey goosekey

ssl-server 20 rsacert goosecert

ssl-server 25

ssl-server 25 vip address

ssl-server 25 cipher rsa-with-rc4-128-md5 8001

ssl-server 25 rsacert moosecert

ssl-server 25 rsakey moosekey

Re: SSl Configuration.


The only problem is that the 2 ssl servers have the same matching criteria. They both match on the same IP address and port (default 443). The CSS has no way of distinguishing a request to goose from a request to moose. They would need either a different VIP address, or a different SSL port (444 for ex). The obstacle is that most clients will go to port 443, and will not know to change the destination port.

so- to sum up, you will probably need different VIP addresses so we can differentiate requests that go to different SSL servers.
