Load Balancing ASA question - which IP do I direct clients too?

Postby Guest » Thu Jul 22, 2010 2:16 pm

I have 2 5520s with a 50 user SSLVPN license on each. I want to use the VPN load balancing feature. Should I be sending users to the Cluster IP Address ? The documentation isnt clear on this point.

 

Thanks,

Justin

Thats correct. You should have the VPN connect to the LB cluster IP, not the individual IP addresses. The master ASA will listen for the connection requests to the LB Cluster IP and based on load either accept the connection or automatically redirect it to one of the standby ASAs in the cluster. This should all be transparent to the VPN user connecting.

You need to use the cluster IP address. If you used the actual address of the firewall outside interfaces then you wouldn get load-balancing.
