Nope, not that I would know of, but if it's TCP or UDP, you're
on the safe side.

If it's simple webtraffic, you don't have to worry about the
architecture. Could you tell us what setup you used? LVS_NAT

Ok, then I might assume you choose the LVS_NAT approach?

Can you fetch the pages without starting pulse?

Well, I'm not familiar with other user space tools except LVS
related ones, aka ipvsadm. To find out, if the problem is the
Domino configuration (which I don't think) do following tests:
1. setup LVS according to the mini-HOWTO
2. get the page without any additional daemon running on the
3. Make a system fingerprint (ipvsadm -L -n, ipchains -nvx -L,
4. If it works, start pulse and create another fingerprint.
5. Make a diff of the two fingerprints, if they differ, your
pulse setup is wrong, if not, you come back to the list
with all the information and we will help you.

What kind of authentication do you use? Sorry, I don't know
nothing about Lotus Domino, except how to crash it :)
If you encounter problems with pulse, you might address your
problems to the piranha mailinglist.
