    Hi Jan,

    Did you manage to get this working. You have to implement client nat and
    this will work perfect

    Hi,

    We're running a pair of Cisco Catalyst 6509 switches with the CSM
    content blade. We loadbalance a setup of servers, each running several
    services, like smtp, pop3 and webmail. We have configured a VIP for each
    service and everything works fine. Now we need to access a VIP from the
    inside (the webmail servers needs to talk to the SMTP VIP). Since the
    request originates from the server VLAN, and not the client VLAN, the
    request just times out. Is there any way to make this work in a bridged
    configuration?

    Creating seperate VLAN's for each services is not an option since that'll
    mean we can only run one service on each server.

    Regards
    Jan
