PEM policies do not get applied.


-- BIG-IP Virtual Edition. -- bigTCP is configured (FastL4 with PEM/GPA hudfilters). -- Virtual server uses Source-NAT.


To work around this, do the following: -- Configure bigTCP virtual server not to use source-NAT. -- Configure destination-IP for hashing in server-vlan (the external VLAN that has the virtual server).
