Exempt urls from load balance

  • Is there any way to exempt urls from load balance?

    We have a list of websites, mostly banking websites that do not like sessions with multiple IP addresses. We really need to be able to put in a list of URLs which only go out one WAN link rather then via the load ballance service.

  • Do a nslookup on these sites. Then add all these IPs to a hosts alias and use policybased routing to send these connections out only through one of your wans. Alternatively you could just send out https protocol only one of your wans. At our office the https rule fixed 99% of all issues with onlinebanking sites (at least if they run as browsersession rather than using a special application).

    Out head code has support for adding URLs as aliases btw but that version is not ready yet for productional use.
