I am trying to set up an HTTP connection over a leased line where the IP address I have to use is different from the host name. I'd thought that setting the host name I want in the URL of the HTTP routing assertion *and* the "use following IP address" in the connection tab would do what I want but it doesn't seem to. Can anyone confirm how the specified IP addresses on the connection tab are used?
The work around we've come up with is to add this host to the local /etc/hosts and map it do the IP we need. That will work functionally but will be a pain to manage. Is there a way to get this effect just from policy configuration.
This is covered in the documentation but it's not really clear what it does.
