[lvs-users] Transparent proxy with Locanode

Oh, ok, I'm sorry I misunderstood you.  I thought you had a workaround for me.  

I wonder, do you think the localnode code could be modified in such a manner as to handle the work REDIRECT does by itself?  If it could do that, then I could get my "fully peered transparent cluster" thing working.

If you think it could be coded, maybe it's time for me to take a deep breath and see if I can hack that kind of code together.

Perhaps it could work like this:  If load balancing on a fwmark, and a port number is specified when the localnode is defined, and the packets target port does not equal the localnode defined port, then handle the transparent proxy the same way that redirect does.

What do you think?

I know that, and you know what happens if you try to do it.

people don't use localnode a whole lot and so no-one's 
thought of expanding what you can do with it. I can't say 
it's impossible, just that I don't know how.
