Round robin load balancing problem.

Hi all -

Ive got a pretty big problem that Im hoping somebody can point me in the right direction of how to solve it.

I currently have two FC1 boxen mirrored and loadbalanced via round robin. They are each at the end of their own t1's from different providers. There is a crossover cable between the two (on eth1) that propogates the changes between the mirrors.

The problem is that every once in a while, one of the boxes will die and stop serving. The box will still start a connection, but it will not serve anything. This becomes a problem when trying to pull up a hosted website. The good server will serve half the content correctly, however the bad server will start the connection, but will not serve anything, so only half the page loads on a client machine.

Does anyone know how to make sure all networking dies if the server stops functioning correctly? Maybe I can write a script? As long as I can figure out a way to shut down networking or the whole box completely, the mirror should take up the slack. Anyone have any ideas how I could accomplish this?

Thanks much,
