Goal

Can you use Oracle Web Cache 10.1.2.0.2 as a reverse proxy and load balancer in front of our Access/Identity servers?

You want to create a site in webcache called access.xyz.com the origin servers for access.xyz.com are
s1.xyz.com
s2.xyz.com

And both of these servers have webgate and webpass installed in them because they are serving as redundant OAM servers.

OR does this reverse proxy/load balancer need to be protected by webgate?


Want to use a load balancer and reverse proxy to spread OAM requests across redundant OAM servers.

To clarify our problem: 
You  installed 5 components:
Webgate, Webpass, identity server, access server and policy manager on two servers.

The OAM servers both have the 5 components installed and configured to communicate with one Active Directory server and everything works. 

You want to install web cache on a third server to be a load proxy and load balancer to the two OAM servers.

Is Webcache and OAM certified to run in this configuration?
