Sorry that I didn't reply earlier, but yesterday (10-8-1999) I was at a
symposium about "Firewall Technologies with Linux as Case Study" in our
University and there was Jos Vos (just to do sure: the author of ipfwadm
and several other firewall-tools) speaking. I spoke to him about the
future of Linux & Firewall & Tools & Kernelimplementation. If someone is
interested in, just drop a mail and I try to answer the question. He
also gave a indepth comparison about ipfwadm and ipchains although both
will soon be obsoleted by iptable and netfilter. This was a bit

Ok, I will not give up. I will have my salary shortened to buy two HP/UX
machines and I'll keep trying until it works. I managed to have LVS-DR
working with:

Solaris 2.5.1, 2.6, 2.7
Linux (of course): 2.0.36, 2.2.9, 2.2.10, 2.2.12
FreeBSD 3.1, 3.2, 3,3!!!
NT (although Webserver would crash): 4.0 no SP
IRIX 6.5 (Indigo2)

I certainly will not give up with HP/UX. Point.

Thanks for your help you all gave me. 
I attached two files I became from HP Response Center. Have fun. You
also need to apply a patch to specify netmasks like, at
least they have to patch our customers machines.
