This is a scenario what our client is facing:
1) Our client needs to LB 2 app/web server. Let's call them
server A and B.
2) For instance, user1 access abc.com and is loadbalanced into
3) When a user wants to confirm a booking, httpS/SSL will be
activated. (verisign commercial CA) to protect credit card info.
4) server A will then establish ANOTHER https session by calling a
third party site (citibank payment gateway) to process the
4) Citibank will reply by accessing:
https://abc.com/success.asp?someapprovalcode if its successful
https://abc.com/failure.asp?failcode if it failed
5) The problem is if the AD3 or any other LBs
are intelligent enough to LB or
stick back to
server A since it is a seperate session and is called from
within the firewall/internal network?
6) I know stickyness/persistence can be applied to user->site
scenarios. but now that the webserver is calling an external
site, does stickiness work in the opposite direction?
7) If the Alteon alone cannot do it, do we need an isd-ssl accel?
