I've been running into an issue with Cisco CSM for a number of years, but always found a way around it. Im attempting to get to the bottom of this to find out once and for all, if this is infact a limitation of the device, or a config issue/work around is possible.
Here is my situation. My CSM's are configured in bridging mode. Traffic works great, traffic bridges across vlans correctly. Everything works and have many instances of smilar configurations running in production. Every once and a while, a client requests that a "real" server (ie LWCMW-021) cannot ping its VIP address (10.95.88.68). I am assuming this is related to the NAT Server, but not 100% sure. Clients have requested this functionality for some type of application based purpose, but Im unaware if CSM in bridging mode can provide this or not.
real LWCMW-021 address 10.95.88.59 inservice ! real LWCMW-022 [Code]....
I recently installed a Cisco ACE 4710 version A4(2.0) into our test network. Load balancing across a number of web servers appears to be working ok and serving pages to users. However, when i tried to check the real time stats via device manager (Monitor> virtual contexts> context > Real servers) a number of fields specifically "current connections", "total conns", "failed conns" etc were showing N/A. Do I need to enable this somehow i.e. polling, if so how?
What are the maximum number of real servers, server farms and virtual servers i can configure on ACE30 module,Is there any documentation available on cisco site where i can check this? Does it depend on the hardware or does it depend on the software version?
We are using a sticky serverfarm with 2 real servers, one server was down for maintenance for an extended period of time. When it came inservice again it was not getting any connections. is it because all the connections had stuck to the other server ? we want sessions to be sticky but we also want to LB?I got it working by bouncing the server that had been online all the time. things started to LB then.BTW the ACE 4710 is running 4.2.1
We have Cisco ASA 5505 with ASDM 5.2 We have one Proxy server in our Local Lab and pointed to Hosted service(Simple Signal)issue is, When our proxy server send register to hosted server, ASA change private IP and post with outside IP and src port as 1063 every time.
Here is debug log on real time monitoring.

implement backup WAN links to complement the metro Ethernet links we currently use so we have some redundancy. These will most likely be a VPN over an Internet service but might be another Ethernet type service, the medium shouldn't really matter I wouldn't think. What I am looking for input on is what is the best way to implement this? Would I just set costs so that the backup is only used when the primary goes down, or should I create new OSPF area for the backup links?
Currently the core switches that are also our routers are 3750G stacks running ip services. We are getting ready to install new firewalls at each location that will become the gateways for the vlans currently on the core switches to give us much more control over segmentation, and because of this I am thinking that it may make sense to then move the OSPF instance from the core to the firewalls. In the drawing I did not show the access layer switches off of the core, and the MOE circuits actually terminate into a 3550-12T switch before the core. I think I will actually eliminate those 3550-12T switches and go straight into the core. This is a current state drawing, so does not include the backup links I am planning.
Since i used this new modem ruoter, on facebook game Cafe WORLD i can't send requests or gifts to neighbors/friends. when the window pops out there's no friend list. it's just a blank space. also when i click the share button only a blank page pops out. i tried it in 3 different pc here @ home in different browser but still had no luck...i tried it on my bf's place and it works so i guess there's a prob with my connection. and sometimes i have the internet access but i couldn't navigate in any website only for chatting.
I have 2 ASA 5505 Firewall, I Configured Site 2 Site VPN no both the fitrewall, as i have a dual ISP, i am able to create the tunnel with primary but once my primary is down i am not able to create the tunnel with back up ISP. During the troobleshoothing by typing Show isakmp sa and Show ipsec sa, i can see my tunnel is up, but not able to decap the packets.
I am currently stuck to setup an automated configuration backup for ACE Blades. I found a script to backup the ACE from the Cisco ANM box but unfortunately I am not very familiar with Linux. (script) in place, to "pull" the ACE config from a Microsoft system ?
I am looking at management (backup of the configuration) of the ACE 4710 running A4.1, the management software is Cisco Cirrus. The question I have is around the management of the context's, I have a backup of the Admin but would like the user context's also, how this is completed.
I'm looking for some documentation I can share with a customer to explain why I can't configure them a back-up sticky server farm when we're not terminating SSL on the the ACE (we pass SSL from the client through to the rservers, sticking the client to the rserver by source IP address). I've not been able to find anything that addresses this particular scenario in my googling so far. I remember discussing this in my training class with the instructor, but I can't find any reference to it. Have any of you run into this and have a link they can share?
I've been reading that the Windows Server Backup that is included with Server 08 R2 is pretty good. Is spending $400 on a third party utility worth it?
I'm asking because we're purchasing a new server soon and I want to know if the included backup is going to be good enough. Will be backing up server state as well as data to tape and possibly an off site server (server 2003) if I get my way.
I have a server with two adapters: 192.168.1.200 and 10.99.1.200, 10.99.1.200 connects to a cisco router 10.99.1.254 (which I have no access to). This connects via WAN to another network to transfer files to another company. 192.168.1.200 is connected to our local LAN. I have a service that uses FTP to get and send files to a server through 10.99.1.200. I recently had to switch our IP scheme from 10.99 to 192.168 and since then haven't been able to send files to the ftp server. My question is, would a router solve my problem? If so, would I; remove the 10.99 adapter, connect 192.168 to the router, connect the router to the switch, connect the 10.99 gateway to the new router (and update any appropriate routing tables on the server)? The service appears to have issues with using a dual homed server and updating it isn't going to happen anytime soon.
We have recently transitioned one of our Ecommerce products to a new data center, at which we now use a one-armed load balancing approach rather then the routed load balancing approach we used previously. This is casuing us some issues as we generally log the source IP address a user comes in on when he fills out an application. Now the logs only show the natted ip address recieved by the load balancer, which does us no good. Any way to log the source IP address when a new connection is created to a particular vip?
I have one server-A(windows 2008) installed one application called"host front" which gives athentication to connect Linux(mainframe console)server(SERVER B). These 2 servers are bihind the firewall.If one internal user who has the athentication to logine server-B ,tried to login server A,will get the" username and password"screen and once they enter the username and password ,will get the server-B screen.But if somebody try to connet via MPLS(we need to test MPLS site customers) from outside via ASA 5540 ,to server-A will get the "username password" screen and once enter the credentials,after 1 minitue will get error"http server faild to send datas to the server" and will not move to server -B screen.Where do you think is the problem?
Wondering if it's possible to send a VSA from my radius server to my ASA-5505 that will instruct the ASA to use one of several split tunnel lists I have created, based on the user name supplied in the Radius request.For example, I can send a VSA of "ip:inacl#1=permit ..." and the ASA will dynamically create an access-list for that user.Is there a similar VSA for split tunnel?
So for example rserver1 and rserver2 are put in serverfarm production1 and are in use with particular sticky and load balancing settings.
Can I then create serverfarm test_production and put both rserver1 and rserver2 in it? Then play around with the sticky and load balancing settings as a test without affecting the production serverfarm.
I'm trying to design a CSS configuration that allows servers in the same vlan to be the source and destination of load-balanced traffic. My thought is to add two new vlans, one for the VIPs and one for the servers, then NAT the source IPs going from the LB to the servers.
Is this the right way to do it?I've never NATted using CSSs, so I wanted to verify what I'm thinking.Our current config trunks the vlans -
I currently have 90 remote locations that have PIX501's. They are all running 6.3 on them. All of these locations are creating an IPSEC VPN to my ASA 5520 (8.4) at the data center. Web access at the remote locations is currently being handled with ACL thru split tunnels. This is getting increasingly not fun as I have to reach out and touch them one at a time whenever I have to allow more access to the net. Code...
I would like to keep my split tunnel (if possible) for ports 443 and 21. I allow access to "any" on those ports and have no plans to change it.
Can I send port 80 down the VPN tunnel to the Proxy/Web Filter and then return the results to the Remote Client.
I cannot get my server to send outgoing traffic through my network. I.e. If i try to connect to any of my services i get a very weak connection. Now, i can still CONNECT, i just don't get any data flow. I cant even PING the server internally, it just times out. Now, regardless of whether i use my internal IP/external domain, i get the same issue. I logged onto my computer and tried a speed test the download was normal (around ~20mbit) but the upload times out.
Here is the fun part, if i connect to the server using a switch, everything works fine! Is it my router or some stupid configuration issue? Router is a WRV54G (I hate this thing). Server is running windows 2008 and has a virtual machine.
ACE A2(3.4). Is it possible to set a rate-limit connections per sec from any source IP. For example, if a client is trying to GET a web page 10 time per sec I will send a reset or drop that connection.
I have four ACE 4710. Each pair of ACE is in one geographical location. Probes are configured so that it is checking regular regex (HTTP GET).When there is need rserver update we change text in our testpage.html (for ie. from "OK" to "SUSPEND" ) so that probe detect fail. In fact rservers are still operational, but should not accept new connections. This works fine. BUT I observed that established connection/sessions did not end up after probe fails. ACE probably wait for openned/established connections to end up and it is what I am askign for.What happens if probe fails but in fact rserver is operational? I thought that if probe fails it also end up/cut all established connections to rserver. But seems it is not true.
