>> net.ipv4.conf.all.hidden = 1
You know, this did cross my mind when I did it, I was actually quite suprised that it worked. But uppon further reflection i think I know the reason that it works. I rebuilt all of my real servers and configured them as above. I also reconfigured the LVS machine, but never had to reboot it. I see that it has entries for all of the web servers in its arp table, but I fear that if I where to reboot the LVS machine, or clear its arp cache, the system would no longer work.
I am going to clear the arp cache on this machine tonight, after the developers and QA leave, and see what happens.
The other thing that I came across (or rather remembered) is that you can give ifconfig a "-arp" arg, this turns on "NO ARP" on the interface. This appears to work on the loopback interface. Does this have the same effect as making it a hidden device?
