Re: Is it possible to keep the client IP address doing SSL offload/acceleration?

There is no problem to keep the client IP address doing SSL offload/acceleration - BUT please be careful with this as soon as you are talking about one-armed setups because they do require source-nat usually.

So for in-line setups: the SI is able to use the client IP talking to the real servers.

The ServerIron is going to use its own IP address only in case source-nat is enabled (needed in a one-armed setup) and of course for healthchecks.
