You create a virtual server when you
want the BIG-IP® system to listen for client-side and server-side
ingress traffic at Layer 2, without performing any packet modifications such as address
Log in to the BIG-IP Configuration utility using the system's management IP
On the Main tab, click
If your BIG-IP system user account restricts you to using TMSH
(TMOS® Shell) only, skip this step.
In the Name field, type a name, such as my_virtual_wire_vs.
From the Type list, select Forwarding (Layer 2).
In the Destination Address field, 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
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
In the Service Port field, type a port number or select a service name from the Service Port list.
From the VLAN and Tunnel Traffic list, select the name of the virtual wire you previously created.
