Is it possible in a routed setup for clients to talk to the servers in the Server Farm directly? IE - Not through the VIP. IE - I want to ping the real server or access a file share, etc.
As you know, in a routed setup, the server gateway is the ACE. It appears that when I try to talk to the server directly, the server talks back to the ACE and traffic is dropped/lost.
I ask because our servers run many applications. I need to load balance to just one of the applications (WWW) but not to the other several apps that are running.
