I am doing some testing with a VM running the latest 9.12.2 Flexmaster software. I have also installed our wildcard cert successfully. Unfortunately it seems that older ZDs, such as 9.0 and 9.1 won't connect at all when connecting them to this FM VM.
For practical reasons we cannot upgrade all these ZDs that are in the field and are looking at a way to make this work so we can use vanity URLs for our client sites using our wildcard cert.
I just can't seem to figure out a way to troubleshoot or debug this dilemma and I was hoping you can shed some light on this. For these clients our reach doesn't really extend beyond warping in to the ZDs and changing the FM url to point to our test box.
A huge thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.
like FlexMaster 9.10.2 Supports below ZoneDirector Models and their versions.. This release supports the following ZD models: •ZoneDirector 1100 -- 184.108.40.206.218 and later (The ZoneFlex H500 is not supported by the ZD 1100) •ZoneDirector 1200 -- 220.127.116.11.218 and later •ZoneDirector 3000 -- 18.104.22.168.218 and later •ZoneDirector 5000 -- 22.214.171.124.218 and late
Thanks for the reply. Yes, these systems connect just fine WITHOUT using the wildcard cert. To reiterate newer ZDs connect just fine with the wildcard cert but older ones do not. This is purely a SSL handshake issue, and not a networking issue per se.
