Unhappy loadbalancing not working fine

Hi ,

i am a new bie to linux world and i am trying to implement the load balalcing stuff as in julian nano.txt on debian sarge 2.6.8 kernel. when i tried to apply the julian patches to the current kernel i counkd not find the linux folder under /usr/src to apply the patches. then i downloaded the sorce and recompiled it and booted into it and was succesfull in applying the patches as it said.

but when one link was dead the traffice was not immediatedly switched over the other line. i want to use this server as a main router. and behind this i want to use the terminal client for the remote server and VOIP.

can any one help me out how to make use of this load balancing to my scenario where the terminal users should not know that one line was dead.

I am not familiar with what julian nano.txt is, nor have I ever used linux to do load balancing. I think you would get more responses with more information, rather than just a bump (which by the way takes your post off the zero reply list, making it less likely to get a response.) What are you using to do the load balancing? Maybe provide a link to the project page for it. What have you set up and what part is working?

Usually posts here on that don't get replies are either lacking in information or are regarding subjects that can be found using the search feature of the forum. I think yours falls under the former.

Thanks for your information darin. i was even new to the forums.

i have 3 nic 's in my debian box, two for the two internet links one for the local network.

here is the link for julina loadbalancing script


i applied the neccessary changed to the script and run the script in my machine. Behind this linux box i would like to use internet for VOIP devices , VPN clinets and RDP seeion for remote terminal servers.

The problem i am facing is when ever there is a fluctualtion in one link the RDP sessions are getting disconneted. and when the link fails, the switch over is not taking place with in 60 seconds. it is at times taking more than 3 to 6 mins.

Then in order to apply julian patches for dead gateway detection and for multiple path routing , i downloaded te kernl source, recompiled it and after that i applied the julian patches for this kernel. but still i am facing the same problem.

here is the kernel version i am using

Linux debian #1 PREEMPT Thu Dec 15 17:00:31 IST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
