Hello. We are experimenting with Pound 2.1. Without Type it works
perfectly--it just round-robins through each BackEnd server (we have
However, the target application requires that a client stay connected
to the same HTTP server. To support this, we are attempting to use
'Type IP'. However, I've found that when using 'Type IP', at least in
Pound 2.1, we are hitting the same BackEnd server for each request.
Specifically, we are hitting the first BackEnd server listed for the
Service in pound.cfg. I can verify and reproduce this condition from
several remote IP's, even with the TTL set to 1.
Perhaps we are doing something wrong?
Note, we are using lynx for testing to prevent client-side caching
during our testing.
Our configuration for pound follows. Notice that we disable
daemon-mode since we are using cronolog.
