Load balancing with NAT

Hello,

If all the clients are behind an ISP and as a result coming in with a single NAT address is it still possible to attain load balancing across multiple servers using "predictor hash address dest 255.255.255.255"?

Thanks,

Murtaza

Re: Load balancing with NAT

Coming from a single NAT source IP address, you may want to consider some form of alternative load balancing besides source IP(such as cookie, x-forwarded-for header, etc). A source IP address is a source IP address and is not likely to give you the results you need if the NAT IP address doesnt change.

Re: Load balancing with NAT

Sticky Src IP is what I am trying to avoid. As the client session are L2TP I can't use cookie stickiness. So that is why I was thinking about using dest hash based load balancing on the ACE.
