Will testing with one client work by opening new browsers?  I continue
to get sent to the same real server from the same client even using
different browser windows with IE or Firefox. Is persistence used by
default?  Here is my setup:

IP Virtual Server version 1.0.8 (size=65536)
Prot LocalAddress:Port Scheduler Flags
  -> RemoteAddress:Port           Forward Weight ActiveConn InActConn
TCP wlc
  ->           Route   1      0          0
  ->		    Route   1      0          0
