Having one clarification in LVS-NAT. Can we connect to VIP from Real
Server which is routed to the same real server?


Load Balancer has 2 NICs one is connected to external network (VIP) and
the other to the internal network to which Real Server 1 & 2 is
The gateway for Real server 1 and 2 are configured to be the Load
Balancer's internal network. 
Virtual Service Configuration: 
LoadBalancer VIP:80 rr    Weight 
RealServer1  RS1:80         1 
RealServer2  RS2:80         1 
The internal routing in RealServer is removed and  
netstat -r shows  
link-local      *          U         0 0          0
default         director         UG        0 0          0
Testing scenario: 
When external client is accessing VIP:80 it works perfectly. First it is
routed to RS1 and then to RS2 and again to RS1 .... 
>From RS1 - 
      Trying to access http://VIP:80 and tcpdump is used for debugging 
      1. When VIP routes the call to RS2:80, RS1 is getting ack and
works fine. 
      2. When VIP routes the call to RS1:80 no ack signal is received
and keeps sending the request. 
     tcpdump in LoadBalancer at this stage: 
         and this goes on... 
Is anything needs to be done apart from these setup?       


Thanks & Regards,
