Can you forward ftp / sftp traffic based on server name





FTP / SFTP traffic will be forwarded based on scheduling method and persistence. Server name has no impact on where the traffic gets forwarded since it is a generic type service.


Product: LoadMaster


Platform: Hardware (LM-X3)

Application: SFTP FTP

Question/Problem Description:

Will the FTP / SFTP virtual service know how to forward traffic to each real server by server name?

Steps to Reproduce:  
Error Message:  
Defect Number:  
Enhancement Number:  
Resolution: Traffic will only be forwarded by scheduling method. Service type will not be HTTP/HTTPS, so content rules cannot be used to load balance based on server name.
Workaround: Create one virtual service for each unique FTP/SFTP service to guarantee which server traffic will be forwarded to.
