Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to set up a NAT Bounce Back in Apache?
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2011 19:18:19 GMT
Hi Eric,

  I am trying to setup load balancing for Oracle Portal using Generic Apache and the documentation
tells me 

"Configure the LBR to perform Network Address Translation (NAT) 
bounce back for loopback requests coming from the PPE running on
 This ensures that when the PPE makes a loopback request to OracleAS Web
 Cache, there are no errors.

NAT bounce back is set up differently on individual LBRs. Consult your 
LBR's configuration guide on how to set this up.

In the past I have done this with F5 BigIP. So I guess I just need to create a VIP and a pool
or range of addresses in the virtual host config?

Thanks for your input!

In Apache, you can just list any number of addresses in each
<VirtualHost> and any number of ServerAlias'es for name-based vhosts,
so no magic is required to access them from the internal network.

Can you describe the problem more directly?
