Hello
i'm trying to set up alteon AD4 web switch
making config directly from manual
and it's not working
alteon is connected to switch using first port
all servers and vip are in the same subnet
and it's not working... can anyone give me the clue why ?
here is my config
i'm trying to connect using client connected to the same switch in the same
subnet (tryied already to connect form client in another and still no
success)

Re: Alteon AD4 configuration problem


I might be misunderstanding your question, but if you have client and
server traffic being seen on the same port of the Alteon, logic would
tell me that you need to enable both client and server processing on
that port...

Re: Alteon AD4 configuration problem


When using PIPs you don't need to enable server processing... normally
anyway.  10.0.28.5 is old and buggy.  Get the latest code.

Also, it's probably not related, but try enabling IP forwarding.  PIP
may require this even though it's all on one subnet.  Seems to ring a bell.

Also a real server of tmout=2 is highly discouraged as a session can be
aged out too early (before a FIN or RST is received by the switch).

Oh... and most important of all, your configuration is missing a virtual
server and service (VIP and VPORT).  Maybe you didn't paste it in?

Re: Alteon AD4 configuration problem


I did not know that regarding PIP.  We have avoided using PIP in our
configuration because it has a tendency to scew our logs.  Good info.. Thx.

Re: Alteon AD4 configuration problem


I just noticed that your PIPs on ports 2-8 are on a different subnet
than the IF, RIPs and VIPs.  The PIP on port 1 is correct so I am
assuming that you thought that all client traffic would get PIPed to
the port 1 PIP?  This is NOT the case when VMA is enabled
(/cfg/slb/adv/mat en).  Your session may get sent to ANY of the ports
so those PIPs also come into play.

To fix it do ONE of the following:

1) Change your PIPs on ports 2-8 to IP addresses on the 10.113.1.96/20
subnet.  If you have any available, that is.  If not, re-subnet if
possible.

2) Change your real servers' default GW to point to the Alteon.  Since
the Alteon owns those PIPs it knows how to route the session to the
correct port for processing.

2) Disable VMA, /cfg/slb/adv/mat dis.  This will force all traffic to
be processed on the ingress port, which in this case I believe is port
1.  This may affect performance if you have many sessions.

Hope this helps... Angler
