I don't think the Virtual Address will pass ICMP (only TCP and UDP).
If the BigIP doesn't have an existing connection or a VIP with the
IP:Port that the packets are coming in one, it will ignore the packet by
You would probably need to turn on "IP Forwarding", then the BigIP will
just route any packets that don't have an assiciated VIP. Depending on
what your full topology looks like, you may not want to do that. If you
did turn on IP forwarding, you could always add in some rules and
filters to block unwated traffic, but it could get pretty complicated

Subject: [load balancing] RE: Beginner's How to configure F5
I have tried to set up the LB so that my boxes behind the LB can
ping, ssh, telnet and ftp.
But, I cannot seem to configure it properly.
Is there any tutorials out there?
My set us is very easy:
LB has 2 nics configured with 10.1.1.45 (external),
The internal nic is plugged in to a switch and a single box
(192.168.10.2) is connected to the switch (for now).
I configured a pool with my single box, then configured a
virtual server with 10.1.10.2:0.
I can hit the web server running on the box and ssh into it, but
cannot ping anything outside the 192.168.10.x network.
| (10.1.1.45 ext)
| (192.168.10.254 internal)
Thx for any replies.
