Web site incompatibility with changing IP addresses in load balaancing



  • Web site incompatibility with changing IP addresses
    Some websites do not work properly if requests from the LAN are initiated from multiple public IP addresses. Hence load balancing is incompatible with these sites. Common examples are sites that maintain login sessions, most frequently online banking. This is most commonly observed with HTTPS sites so usually HTTPS should not be load balanced. Occasionally it is a problem with HTTP sites that maintain session, but this is rare.
    For sites that do not function with load balancing, add firewall rules to not load balance traffic to these destinations or protocols.
    how can i  add firewall rules to not load balance traffic to these destinations or protocols ????
