That sounds suspicously like lynx is connecting to the wrong host -
i.e. not to the Linux Director. Either that, or one of the
real servers is malfunctioning.

Are you sure that the connections are going through the Linux Director?
Do the connections show up when your run ipvsadm -L -n and
ipvsadm -L -c -n ?

It sounds suspiciously like you are connecting directly to one of the
real servers - the ARP problem.  Check the arp entries for the VIP on
the machines that your are running lynx on.  You probably need to hide
the loopback interfaces on your real servers.
