LSLB | Farms | Create

This section allows you to create load-balancing farms. These farms can be configured in two ways:

  • HTTP: This profile works as a reverse proxy, routing HTTP and HTTPS requests to backend servers. WebSockets are supported and use source NAT (SNAT) to route responses back to the client.
  • L4xNAT: This profile works as a router, forwarding TCP, UDP, SCTP, SIP, FTP, TFTP, PPTP, and SNMP traffic to backend servers. It supports destination NAT (DNAT), stateless DNAT, SNAT:, and direct server return (DSR) routing modes.
