Hi,

for our imap and pop3-proxies we are using the IpTablemodule ClusterIP and behind one CGP Server.
For smtp we do still testing the same thing with postfix and it seems to work very well.
No Loadbalancer required and no more single point of failure.

See:
http://security.maruhn.com/iptables-tutorial/x8906.html

Automatic failover can done with heartbeat etc.

Regards
Urban

There is an open source load balancing tool I read about a long time ago named Pen http://siag.nu/pen/ but I have never used it. It might be worth looking at. I think it was mentioned in Linux Journal or Linux Magazine a while back.

Hello List-Members,

we are planning to migrate to a 0x2 CGP Cluster and I wonder, if it is possible to use our Checkpoint Cluster as load-balancer.

If anybody has experiences with this please share them with me.

Any other suggestions for not too pricy but useful hardware LBs or even solutions with linux are very welcome.

Thanks in advance,
thomas
