Opened: Sep 18, 2015
The new feature of Per VLAN/TMM based HW SYN-Cookie enhancement to protect BIG-IP device and network is a hardware-only feature. It can only be turned on with hardware platforms that are installed with the supported FPGA firmware bitstreams, namely, BIG-IP 2000/4000/5000 family (v184.108.40.206+), VIPRION B2250 (v220.127.116.11+), and VIPRION B4450 (all), and BIG-IP i5000/i7000/i10000 family (all). For the hardware platforms without the firmware support, there will be no fall-back mechanism to turn on the feature in software only.
The feature is unavailable on platforms with no firmware support.
