Prepare the F5 BIG-IP
Download the f5.checkpoint_sandblast_icap iApp template from the link below. This is an iApp template that creates ICAP related elements (nodes, pool, internal virtual server, profiles). The newly created request and response adapt profiles can be used by standard virtual servers so they can interact with a Check Point SandBlast ICAP Server.
- Login to the Configuration Utility and Import the iApp template: iApps > Templates > Import.
- Deploy a new application by using the iApp: iApps > Application Services > Applications > Create.
- Click Finished to deploy the iApp. You will see the components that have been configured.
- You can now use the newly created Request and Response Adapt profiles and attach them to a Virtual Server that has been configured with a HTTP profile.
