Question Routing and LVS


Anyone has experience setting up IP tables + NAT routing with LVS (linux virtual server/load balancer) for a cluster of machines? Any help is appreciated. I am using gentoo of course. I got the software and kernel working, IP-tables are working too, i think the only thing that is still missing is configuration of it all to work together, and that's where i am pretty fuzzy in terms of knowledge.

Ps. I cannot believe that there is still no forum for gentoo linux.

I use LVS with NAT, IPTABLES, and Keepalived. Check out keepalived to have a central location for the configuration of the virtual servers. Basically with this configuration, we are able to change a script and config file to manage our LVS implementation.

Thanks for actually replying to my post, i'm surprised that you are the only one who did it too. So thanks.

As a matter of fact i did find keepalived (pretty much by accident) few days ago and i am now successfully implemented it for LVS-NAT. Next step is to do IPTABLES, are there anything i should know about running iptables with LVS? (Oh, i am using 2.6.7 kernel). I've read about some issues that 2.4 kernels had with such setup, but i am not sure if the problem remain in 2.6 kernels.

Issue resolved.

I haven't had a single problem running IPTables and LVS (i use fairly simple ruleset though) Its possible that more complicated rules for IPTables would break LVS, but i haven't encountered such issues yet, and likely will not get them in the future as simpler=better.
