CSS Load Balancing and AOL

We are load balancing a web site consisting of two servers using advanced-balance sticky-srcip. We have several customers that use AOL to access this site. They complain that their sessions are timing out. It appears that the souce IP address for the AOL users changes, thus causing the error. Is there anything we can do to prevent this from happening to AOL users?

use arrowpoint cookies.

The command is 'advanced-balance arrowpoint-cookies'

This will rely on a cookie stored in the client browser [sent by the CSS at the first connection attempt].

Hi,

we are also hosting one of the biggest Internet Sites in Germany. We know this problem overall with megaproxys.

If you cannot insert cookies, try to change the sticky mask to 255.255.255.0.

With this setting, we have only a very small number of problems. Around 0,02 % overall.

Best Regards
