To enable/disable the Packet Routing Filter, follow the steps below:
- In the main menu of the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI), select System Configuration > Network Setup > Packet Routing Filter.
- Enable/disable the Packet Routing Filter option.
Note: If GEO is enabled, the Packet Routing Filter is enabled by default and cannot be disabled. If GEO is disabled, the Packet Routing Filter is configurable – it can be either enabled or disabled. To disable GEO (on a LoadMaster which has GEO functionality), in the main menu, select Global Balancing > Disable GSLB.
If the filter is not activated, the LoadMaster also acts as a simple IP-forwarder.
When the filter is activated, client-to-LoadMaster access to Virtual Services is unaffected. Real Server initiated traffic that is processed on the LoadMaster with SNAT (Server Network Address Translation) is also unaffected.
