NLB - WIndows Server - Application server redirection according to IP range RRS feed

  • Question

  • A long time ago I did not work with Windows Server NLB.
    Is it possible via NLB to route incoming requests to different application servers based on the user's IP?
    I would like to force requests in Europe to go to my application server in Europe. And requests from Asia went to Asia.
    That is, the balancing is not by the load, but by the locality of the user.

  • NLB is very basic as it works mainly in the NDIS driver layer. it means all what it do is a forwarder! it forward whatever traffic it receives to both nodes behind. however it has a feature of affinity but still it won't be useful in your scenario.

    hope this helps

    Thanks Mahmoud
