Description Martin Östlund cendio 2021-08-04 12:17:01 CEST
One master and one agent in a sub cluster.
listen_port on master: 300
listen_port on agent: 301

When trying to login through web access the authentication works but the web access on master tries to redirect to the agent using its own listen_port instead of the one defined in webaccess.hconf on the agent.

Since nothing is running on port 300 on the agent the connection is refused.

Expected outcome:
Successful redirect to agent

Use case / Scenarios:
Probably never. But its not obvious that this setup will not work and it is not documented, this could lead to confusion.
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2021-08-31 14:28:52 CEST
The use case here was that the customer only has a single IP and wants to make a cluster available by using different ports. We already have bug 3003 for this, although it focuses on the native client rather than Web Access.
