Changing port forward - websocket behavior?
We have a port forward configured for a customer to one of his webservers. On that forward (80/tcp, 443/tcp) he's also running a websocket for an application. That all works fine. Now he wants us to switch the forwarding target to a second webserver (a newer copy of the other one).
I'm curious: what will happen to the states belonging to the clients talking to the application via the websocket? Aren't these active states/connections that won't get purged by a filter reload and so will still be connected to the old server after a rule reload?
Thanks for input :)
Open states will stay open. They will need to be closed, expired, or otherwise killed/reset to point to the new server.
