Configuring General Properties for the Redirect Server (SRC CLI)

Use the following configuration statements to configure general properties for the redirect server:

redirect-server { destination-url destination-url; tcp-port tcp-port; refresh;}
redirect-server ipv6-redirect {tcp-port tcp-port;}

To configure properties for the redirect server:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the redirect server.
    user@host# edit redirect-server
  2. Specify the URL to which to send subscriber traffic.
    [edit redirect-server]user@host# set destination-url destination-url
  3. (Optional) Specify the TCP port on which the redirect server runs. If you do not specify a TCP port, the redirect server runs on the port 8800.
    [edit redirect-server]user@host# set tcp-port tcp-port
  4. (Optional) Specify whether the redirect server sends an HTTP 200 OK response with an HTML document that includes the <HTTP-Equiv="Refresh"> header to a subscriber’s browser in response to a captured request.
    [edit redirect-server]user@host# set refresh

    If you do not use the refresh option, the redirect server sends an HTTP 302 Found response to a subscriber’s browser in response to a captured request.

    By setting the refresh option, the load on the Web server is decreased because non-browser (or non-HTML) client applications that use HTTP do not follow this refresh message; however, most client applications do follow HTTP 302 messages.

To configure IPv6 general properties for the redirect server:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the IPv6 general properties for the redirect server.
    user@host# edit redirect-server ipv6-redirect
  2. (Optional) Specify the TCP port on which the redirect server runs. If you do not specify a TCP port, the redirect server runs on the port 8900.
    [edit redirect-server ipv6-redirect]user@host# set tcp-port tcp-port
