I’m new to Nutanix so bear with me if this has been asked. Is it possible to simulate a x-over cable between two VM’s? basically I want any traffic leaving a load balancer to be passed via layer 1-2 to a WAF appliance so it can be inspected. The WAF is in transparent mode and won’t have an IP Address. In the past with physical machines i would just cable them inline.

Hi @rrhsandman,

i guess you can definitely do that with Nutanix Flow Service Chaining.

You can find some info here:

and i’ve found an example to do that via REST API too:

I’m quite sure there are more examples outhere.

Have a nice day!
