Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

We have installed the Redhat Cluster Suite to do the load balancing task.
Also, we need to handle SSL (https) request. From the documentation, it simply mention that to use the firewall mark. However, the cluster has setup but only port 80 (http) can work.
I have read a lot of documents from different websites, but cannot find a solution.
Is anyone has this experience.
The configurations like that:
There are two virtual servers acted as "router", and there are two application servers under it.
Also, the two Real servers need to run https.
| | | |
| LVS 1 | | LVS 2 | (hot standby)
| .... (the connection from here is not drawn)
| | | |
| Real Server 1 | | Real Server 2 |
What my configuration is working is, for http request, the load balancing works well, i.e. sometimes the request will go to Real Server 1 while sometimes it will go to Real Server 2.
But we have to implement https protocol. According to the documentation, it said that it can done by using the firewall mark, but we cannot make it work.
May be we have missed something, may be something has miss configurated.
Also, anyone knows that, using the above settings, where is the SSL certificate to be installed?
Since, someone said that it must be installed in the LVS 1 (and 2), but someone (and I agreed that) to install on Real Servers 1 and 2.
On my opinion, as the LVS only acted like a router to route the request to RS 1 and 2, it don't really work on the request, so I think it is no reason to install the certificate on it.
Finally, someone even suggest that the SSL certificate to be installed on the firewalls.
I am really very puzzled the above setting for weeks but cannot get the answer. Hope anyone here can share his/her experiences.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
