Create an SSH virtual server with SSH proxy security

Create an SSH virtual server to protect SSH connections with the SSH proxy.
  1. On the Main tab, click
    Local Traffic
    Virtual Servers
    .
    The Virtual Server List screen opens.
  2. Click
    Create
    .
    The New Virtual Server screen opens.
  3. In the
    Name
    field, type a unique name for the virtual server.
  4. For the
    Destination Address/Mask
    setting, confirm that the
    Host
    button is selected, and type the IP address in CIDR format.
    The supported format is address/prefix, where the prefix length is in bits. For example, an IPv4 address/prefix is
    10.0.0.1
    or
    10.0.0.0/24
    , and an IPv6 address/prefix is
    ffe1::0020/64
    or
    2001:ed8:77b5:2:10:10:100:42/64
    . When you use an IPv4 address without specifying a prefix, the BIG-IP system automatically uses a
    /32
    prefix.
    The IP address you type must be available and not in the loopback network.
  5. In the
    Service Port
    field, type
    22
    or select
    SSH
    from the list.
  6. From the
    SSH Proxy Profile
    list, select the SSH proxy profile to attach to the virtual server.
  7. For the
    Default Pool
    setting, either select an existing pool from the list, or click the Create (+) button and create a new pool.
    The pool you create or select should contain your backend SSH server.
  8. Click
    Finished
    .
The SSH virtual server appears in the Virtual Servers list.
