Hi Tom,

I saw a hint on the website about round robin of services and aliased interfaces but it is not clear whether that hint covers my question.

I need to distribute client requests for a particular service on one interface say eth0 to a number of servers on the other side of the firewall in a round robin fashion. I'd appreciate more light.

Thank you
