About iSession listeners

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. By default, the system creates an iSession listener named isession-virtual on the local endpoint, which monitors all incoming traffic (all ports).

Adding iSession listeners

You can add iSession™ listeners for specific application traffic that you want the system to handle differently from the iSession listener that the system creates automatically.
  1. On the Main tab, click WAN Optimization > iSession Listeners.
  2. Click the Create button. The New iSession Listener screen opens.
  3. Type a name for the iSession listener. The IP Address field displays the IP address of the local endpoint, which cannot be modified on this screen.
  4. Type the service port used by the application, or select an application from the list. When you select from the drop-down list, the Portfield displays the associated default port.
  5. Specify the VLANs on which this iSession listener listens for incoming traffic. Move the VLANs from the Available list to the Selected list.
  6. Select the iSession profile to associate with this iSession listener.
  7. From the Authentication and Encryption list, select the SSL profile you want the system to use for inbound iSession connections from the WAN that are terminated by this iSession listener. You can use the default values clientssl and wom-default-clientssl to get the WAN Optimization Manager™ up and running, but you need to customize this profile for your production environment.
  8. Click Finished.

Deleting iSession listeners

You can delete an iSession™ listener. If you delete the system-created isession-virtual without creating a new iSession listener, the WAN Optimization Manager™ cannot optimize traffic.
  1. On the Main tab, click WAN Optimization > iSession Listeners.
  2. Check the Select box next to the iSession listener you want to delete.
  3. Click the Delete button.
