lvs-version 0.9.15. This machine which acts as load balancer has two NICs
one eth0 and eth0:0 (vip)  and the other eth1 and eth1:0 (router ip) .

eth0 is connected to a client network whose ip starts from to and eth1 is connected to a real server network. I have two
realservers with one with ip and the other with

I have modified the file /etc/sysctl.conf for packet forwarding and
defragmenting and added the line
ipchains -A forward -j MASQ -s -d
in the file rc.local.

I have set the default gateway for the real servers as

Now when i start the pulse daemon and try to access the webpage from  I am unable to get any
page from the real servers.

when i stop pulse and lvs daemons, i am able get the pages from the Load
balancer machine.

rsh_command = rsh
backup_active = 0

     active = 1
     address = eth0:0
     port = 80
     send = "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n"
     expect = "HTTP"
     load_monitor = ruptime
     scheduler = wlc
     protocol = tcp
     timeout = 6
     reentry = 15
     server php3{
     address =
         active = 1
         weight = 1000
    server help{
     address =
         active = 1
