Hi, all.  I am new to Ultramonkey and have tried to implement
streamline ha lb.    My implementation would be for 2 openldap servers
(acting as directors and real servers) and I am a bit confused about
the usages  of

real= ????
real= ????

>From my understanding, in my case, I should have
real= ipip
real= ipip

I read the man pages and googled but I could not locate any references
on when to use these parameters.

Please tell us and others what are more appropriate to use in Direct
Routing (ipip ?), NAT (masq??),  IP Tunnel (gate???).  Are my guesses
correct?  Are there any exceptional cases that might not follow the
rules and please explain for newbies like me these cases?

Thank you so much for taking your times.
