I agree that loadbalancer.jar is a great concern! No one's told me that a product like the Cisco Redirector would'nt work. What's wrong with DNS round robin is that it does not provide session sticky routing of a client to the same box. Redirector and most other true load balancer boxes do this. Cisco Redirector and it's equivelants are in theory more reliable than a CPU/Box running java and loadbalancer.jar. curt -- Curt Smith [EMAIL PROTECTED] (w) 404-463-0973 (h) 404-294-6686
