Problem with Cisco LocalDirector

I've inherited a project that contains a load-balancing portion. Cisco
Local Director was purchased, but I have not been able to configure it
correctly.

Here is the layout.

We have 2 geographic locations. There is a webserver/application at
each location. Local Director is supposed to load-balance between the
2 sites and in the case of a failure at 1 location still be able to
access the 1 that is up.

LocalDirector has a real IP (192.168.100.1) and a virtual IP
(192.168.100.2) set up. The real servers on 192.168.100.3 and
192.168.200.1. When we bind 192.168.100.3 to the virtual IP everything
works OK (same subnet), but when we bind 192.168.200.1 (different
subnet) nothing works. Going to the virtual IP does nothing.

I am hoping that it is a configuration issue, but it seems strange
that binding the IP on another subnet/location causes nothing to work.

Any suggestions? I've scoured the groups, but have found nothing that
really helps.

Thanks

This is going back a while, but "Local" in LocalDirector means you can
load-balance b/w servers in the same local segment. What you want to do is
what a Distributed Director did. However, both products are pretty much
antiquated now.

HTH,

Mike
