IP Transparency with SSL passthrough

Can IP transparency be implemented when using SSL passthrough?

Our environment passes X_CLUSTER_CLIENT_IP when using http, but not when using SSL since we are not performing decryption within Stingray.

So will IP transparency solve the problem? And can it be implemented without SSL decryption?

Re: IP Transparency with SSL passthrough

Yes, IP Transparency does work with SSL Passthrough. Another option could be to decrypt SSL on the Traffic Manager, let it add the X-Cluster-Client-IP header, then re-encrypt in the pool's SSL settings, if you can't get IP Transparency working.
