Assigning ciphers to multiple Virtual Services without using the RESTful API

To assign a set of ciphers to multiple Virtual Services without using the RESTful API you can copy the cipher HTML code from an existing Virtual Service and use this code to modify another Virtual Service.

To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Open your web browser of choice and log in to the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI).
  2. In the main menu, select Virtual Services > View/Modify Services.
  3. Click Modify on the SSL-accelerated service to copy from.
  4. Expand SSL Properties.
  5. Right click on the list of Assigned Ciphers.
  6. Select Analyze/Inspect element.
  7. Click on the <select name line of code associated with the ciphers.
  8. Press F2 on your keyboard to edit the selected HTML code.
  9. Copy the entire cipher section of code from (and including) <select name to </select> (see code example below).
  10. Close the HTML editor.
  11. Click View/Modify Services in the main menu of the LoadMaster WUI.
  12. Click Modify on the new SSL accelerated service.
  13. Expand SSL Properties.
  14. Right click on the list of Assigned Ciphers.
  15. Select Analyze/Inspect element.
  16. Click on the <select name line of code associated with the ciphers.
  17. Press F2 on your keyboard to edit the selected HTML code.
  18. Delete the existing HTML code for this section and paste the copied code in its place.
  19. Close the HTML editor.
  20. Click Set Ciphers to apply the changes.
  21. Repeat the steps above for each Virtual Service that will be using this set of ciphers.

Code Example:

<select name="right" size="6" multiple="" onmouseover="ht('The ciphers that are currently assigned to the VS. If no ciphers are specified, the VS will use the default cipher list. The first cipher in the list that the client supports will be used.')">

<option value="ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384">ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384</option>

<option value="ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384">ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384</option>

<option value="ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384">ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384</option>

<option value="ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA384">ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA384</option>

</select>
