Unable to set extra ports for SSL Reencrypted VIPs





Extra ports for Virtual Services with SSL Acceleration


Product: LoadMaster.

Version: Any

Platform: Any

Application: Any

Question/Problem Description:

Is there a limitation with reencrypt and adding extra ports? When the service is set to reencrypt the option for extra ports is not visible anymore or if the extra port is added the reencrypt-option is greyed out.

Steps to Reproduce:  
Error Message:  
Defect Number:  
Enhancement Number:  

Re-encryption cannot be used with transparency because there is no way for the information about the source IP address to be passed through the re-encryption engine. For similar reasons, this also applies to additional ports, hence the block / interlock.

Resolution: The LoadMaster cannot use Extra Ports when doing SSL reencryption. If additional ports are needed, create an additional service and use the needed extra port there.
Workaround: The only workaround is to create a separate VIP for the other port.
