Hi All,

We need to step three SOAP servers ( Bankend ) and four front end server, will send request to these SOAP server via F5 load balancer.

SOAP server IP : 172.X.X.1-3 with private SSL certificate
SOAP server Port : 9002

Can anybody suggest me, how I will configure the SOAP front end server and F5 load balancer, so I will receive the request properly on SOAP backend server via F5 on private certificate and SOAP backend server response it properly.

Note: F5 is between SOAP front and backend server.

Regards,

You would setup a pool for your soap server 172.x.x.1,2, and 3 and add them to the pool.

Assuming you want to offload the SSL processing to the LTM you would import your cert to the F5 and create a SSL profile. At this point you can turn off the SSL processing on the soap servers.

Next set up a virtual server on the F5 for the soap requests. Apply the SSL profile to the client side, point it to the pool. You can do a couple of things so far as routing of requests is concerned. Either use SNATs (Automap is easiest), or change the default route on the soap servers to point to the F5 self-ip.

F5 has some free online training on basic setup for LTM. If you are new to F5 I would suggest you take the course.

Good Luck

Note the front end servers would make all requests to the virtual server IP you have set up.
