Source interface selection

The source IP address is determined by the system and is typically the IP address of the outgoing interface in the routing table. However, routing switches may have multiple routing interfaces and outgoing packets can potentially be sent by different paths at different times. This results in different source IP addresses.

AOS-CX provides a configuration model that allows the selection of an IP address to use as the source address for all outgoing traffic. This allows unique identification of the software application on the server site regardless of which local interface has been used to reach the destination server. The source interface selection supports selecting an IP address or interface name.

If the source interface and source IP are configured, Source IP will have priority.
