Problem setting up lvs

Dear Billy,

Thanks for the help. I just changed it to use a specific port (I tried 23
first then 22) and removed the -p option. However, it still just always goes
to lnxtst2 and never lnxtst3. I did wonder about different clients and tried
it from another as well but that made no difference.

One thing I wonder about. I downloaded the kernel sources from
(version 2.4.26 as it happens) and used the LVS stuff that is included in
there. I notice on the web LVS web site that there is code for the kernel
and I assumed that what was in the kernel would be the same. However, is this
actually true? Oh well I bet it is something stupid I've done but I can't
see what it is. I'll start again on Monday and it will probably turn out to
be some stupid typing mistake.

Best wishes.....
