CSS115003 8.2 and Microsoft RDP TCP 3389

Unanswered Question
Jun 26th, 2007


I would be very grateful to get some tips on how to configure the load balancing for the farm of Windows 2003 Terminal Servers (RDP) TCP 3389.

The key unknowns are:

? Application Type

? Load Balancing Method

? Advance Balance

? Keepalive Type

CSS115003 is working fine using just default setup which is http based. The question whatever this default setup is best suited for the RDP 3389 service.

Load balancing the traffic other than http or ssl would surely be a nightmare with the CSS as they got very limited options for adv load bal techniques in order to implement session stickiness. Use either of these methods sticky-srcip or sticky-srcip-dstport.

You can use

keealive type tcp

keepalive port 3389

balance round-robin

advanced-bal sticky-srcip

Do not use any application type. Remember you have the threat of mega proxies if you use src ips as adv bal.
