For a BIG-IP® device, the local endpoint is the WAN Optimization Manager™ (WOM®) on the system where you are working. The remote endpoint is the WAN Optimization Manager on another BIG-IP system (on the other side of the WAN), with which the local endpoint interacts. After you identify the endpoints, communication between the WAN Optimization Managers takes place in an iSession™ connection between the two BIG-IP WOM devices.
You can configure two BIG-IP® WOM® systems for high availability by setting them up as redundant systems. Both systems must be installed on the same hardware platform. When you configure two BIG-IP WOM systems for high availability, specify the floating IP address as the WAN self IP address of the local endpoint. For WAN optimization, you can use only the active-standby redundancy mode (not the active-active mode). Otherwise, you can set up redundancy as you would for any BIG-IP system.
|To disable the local endpoint||For the State setting, clear the Enabled check box.|
|To change the IP port||In the Tunnel Port field, type a different number. This is the IP port that the BIG-IP® WOM® uses for control connections. It must be a port that is allowed access through the firewall. The range is from 1 to 65535.|
|To handle non-iSession traffic||For the No iSession Route setting, select one
of the options for handling traffic for which there is no remote
endpoint to complete the iSession connection.
|To disallow NAT traffic||Clear the Allow NAT check box.|
|To change the SNAT setting||From the SNAT list, select an option.
|To delete the local endpoint||Click Delete.|
An iSession listener is a virtual server created on the local endpoint, which terminates iSession™ connections for inbound traffic from the WAN on the specified port. When you use the Quick Start screen to configure WAN Optimization Manager™ (WOM®), the system creates the default iSession listener isession-virtual on the local endpoint, which monitors all incoming traffic (all ports) and terminates iSession connections.
