ACE DSR (Direct Server Return) Questions.

I currently have an ACE 4710 configured for DSR. However, I am at a loss as to how I should configure the loopback (or virtual interface) for the servers. Easy to do in Linux, but not so much on a Windows Server 2000 box.

Any ideas or guides would be appreciated.

Hi, Syed is right, you can find further information on this configuration (Asymmetric Server Normalization) here :

or here for further considerations :

First create virtual adapter on the server(s). (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/236869) then assign VIP address as the loopback IP address.

Make sure that Real's default gateway is not ACE.
