On load balancer, How to setup ACL to allow only specific ip addresses can access virtual ip address

The ServerIron ADX works pretty well. We have lots of Virtual IPs configured on it.  For our mail (SMTP) VIP, we only want specific ip addresses can access the VIP to prevent it become an open-relay. There are lots of servers in the same subnet and we can't define ACLs on routers or switches.How to setup ACL on the load balancer to allow only specific ip addresses can access virtual ip address

You can use policy-based load balancing. With this feature you can redirect traffic (from known sources to a specific group of servers, or to the default group of servers), and also you can drop the traffic from known sources by redirecting to group-id 0.

 

You can find a good explanation in this link:
