Dynamic discovery is a process through which the BIG-IP® identifies and adds remote endpoints automatically. The process occurs when the BIG-IP receives traffic that is matched by a virtual server with an iSession™ profile, but does not recognize the remote destination. When a BIG-IP receives a request destined for a location on the network behind the BIG-IP on the other side of the WAN, the first BIG-IP sends out TCP options or ICMP probes to discover, authenticate, and initiate communication with the new remote endpoint.
Perform these tasks to manage dynamic discovery of remote endpoints.
