Hi ;

We have an ACE box and one of the virtual ace is situated behind a proxy which is facing outside . Behind the ACE box is our web servers.
All outside request to the web servers will be as this :-

Outside----->firewall--------->Proxy------------->Ace LB----------------->Web servers

Problem is ACE will only see all the request coming from one IP that belongs to the proxy thus I will not be able to do load balancing due to the stickyness concept in the ACE. It will only hit one of the web server rather than spreading it equally . Will it works if I'm using the other stickyness option such as cookie or http ?? But all the outside user will type the same URL thus I don't think it will work.
