Load balance 2 server farm with the same CSS

I want to know is if possible to balance two server farms (in diferent subnetworks of course) with tihe same CSS 11501. I have a firewall with 2 interfaces, in each interface I have one server farms to be balanced...Im not sure about the default gateway configuration in the CSS.

The CSS is also a router.

If you interconnect the 2 subnets to the css, you will bypass the firewall (or there is a risk of a hacker bypassing your firewall).

Therefore, you should have your CSS attached to only 1 subnet and use client nat when needed to guarantee that the response from the server goes back to the CSS.

Thanks

Im not clear about your answer. Do you say that is not possible to balance two server farm with the same CSS?

this is possible but this is not a secure design as the CSS will be able to bypass your firewall.
