vlan virtual port - same as VIP?

 

I have two 6600 SA and I need to create a reverse route to a floating IP for redundancy . I cant point to Internal VIP for technical reason.

 

Is "Vlan Virtual Port" (Networks > VLANs > Virtual Ports) the same as HSRP/Internal VIP?

Re: vlan virtual port - same as VIP?

They are both different.

 

The internal VIP is primarily to allow end users to sign-in (especially for one arm config and for deployments that have end users on both sides i.e the external DMZ and internal)

 

The VLAN and all virtual ports under VLAN are mainly to allow outgoing traffic (user traffic to backend resources) to be sourced  via a specific VLAN interface.
