[Archive] How to interpret the output of command 'debug vip all' on ScreenOS devices



Article ID: KB32095 KB Last Updated: 25 Sep 2020Version: 2.0

This article provides a sample output for the command "debug vip all" on ScreenOS devices and explains how to interpret it.


We have the following VIP configured on the device:

ssg20-wlan-> get vip
Virtual IP      Interface      Port/Port-range  Server       Service/Port-range(protocol)    ethernet0/0    8080    HTTP

Below is a sample output for debug vip all captured with debug flow basic for a packet received on the firewall on the VIP (Virtual) IP

****** 1568668.0: <Untrust/ethernet0/0> packet received [52]******
  ipid = 15252(3b94), @03a11af0
  packet passed sanity check.
  flow_decap_vector IPv4 process
  no session found
  flow_first_sanity_check: in <ethernet0/0>, out <N/A>
  chose interface ethernet0/0 as incoming nat if.
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : ethernet0/0 get v service>
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : found a vip for on ethernet0/0 interface
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : vport = 38e4c3c,
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : in request:> 
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : --- server state: ----
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : -1 
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : alive.
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : allocated server ip:port =
## 2017-08-19 16:08:08 : Found VIP for session (port: 511)
  flow_first_routing: in <ethernet0/0>, out <N/A>
  search route to (ethernet0/0,> in vr trust-vr for vsd-0/flag-0/ifp-null
  cached route 3 for
  [ Dest] 3.route>, to ethernet0/1

We can see that based on the configuration, the received packet matches the VIP service based on the destination IP/port combination. The virtual IP and port is then translated to the allocated/host IP and port.
