what we'd really like is ipvs hooked into the FORWARD chain. Can
you do this too?
To be honest i don't understand the reason for hooking LVS into the
Horms would be a better person to speak about this. The general idea
is to have the director be a router
o there will not be a VIP on the director. Presumably the director
will advertise any VIPs.
Work, with the PREROUTING method.
o all filtering/fwmarks/NAT/firewalling that normally happens on
ingress/egress will not collide with ipvs.
Right, with the PREROUTING only fwmarks are set, filtering and NAT
happens after ipvs.
hmm, what's the NAT problem with having ipvs in the FORWARD chain?
(or have I missed your point?)
For transparent proxying there has to be a DNAT/REDIRECT to the local
machine, if the director/localnode applies the DNAT/REDIRECT rule it
only works on the localnode. The realservers get already NATed
packets, and replies have the wrong destination ports set.
Maybe i'm missing something, but it seems that PREROUTING is the
best point for LVS to act like a real router, because it gets
packets that haven't been NATed yet.
A while ago Horms move ipvs to PREROUTING and then decided it was
the wrong place and it would be better in the FORWARD chain.
We'll change our minds if we're wrong.
If there are problems and advantages in special cases for FORWARD
and PREROUTING, then perhaps we need both versions.
Yes, you're right. FORWARD could be interesting if the localnode
feature isn't required, but it wouldn't solve the transparent proxy
problem with localnode + realservers. Well if i add a choice for a
FORWARD method the user could choose...
The only negative thing is that traffic can't be filtered in a
it would be nice to avoid the collisions with firewall rules that we
Yes, but i can't find a good solution for that if used together with
transparent proxying, the only one i've found was the PREROUTING one,
