i have a query on layer 3 load balancing. Please refer to the following example and config,
ip address 126.96.36.199
ip address 188.8.131.52
add service A
add service B
Now for example if i launch on IE the following URL : 10.10.10.10 and it hits the CSS in this case. Will the CSS direct traffic to port 80 on service A and B?
So does that mean if i specify http://10.10.10.10:2222 on IE, then CSS will load balance traffic to port 2222 on service A and B? If not, is there anyway i can achieve this? Appreciate ur feedback.
Yes you're right! The CSS by default passes the request using the same destination port the client used to open the request. Since there are no ports defined PAT is not considered.
Hope this helps.
