Before you start this task, you must have finished configuring WAN
Optimization Manager™ (WOM®) on BIG-IP® systems on opposite sides of the WAN, and the systems have discovered
their remote endpoints.
You can use these diagnostics from the local BIG-IP system to the remote server to
verify the BIG-IP system-to-server routes, in case the remote BIG-IP system is not
On the Main tab, expand WAN Optimization and click
In the Diagnose Network Connections field, type the IP
address of a remote WOM endpoint, and click the Run
Network connection diagnostic information appears on the screen. Use
this information to determine whether there is a connection between the local
endpoint and the remote endpoint you specify.
Use the data displayed on the screen to make corrections.
In the Ping field, type the IP address of a host, for
example, a remote BIG-IP system, and click the Run
Use this utility to determine whether other BIG-IP systems can be reached
through the routed WAN network. If ping fails, verify the configuration of your
VLANs, self IP addresses, and default gateway.
Use the data displayed on the screen to make corrections, such as properly
defining the local and remote routes.
Ping results appear on the screen. If a ping fails, you can use
Traceroute to pinpoint the location of a failure in
In the Traceroute field, type the destination IP address
you want to reach, and click the Run button.
Use the data displayed on the screen to correct any routing problems. This data
can reveal whether the problem is in the WAN, or is local to either of the
BIG-IP systems. You can also view the observed latency, if any, along the WAN
