Greetings all!

I was wondering if anyone may have a suggestion for 
the project I am working on.

Here is the situation:

One machine running:

a) LinuxDirector (on ip-alias)
b) named dns     (listening on ip-alias port 53)
c) second named dns (listening on ip-alias port 53)

So basically I want to load balance between 2 DNS servers
running on the same machine with LinuxDirector.

Now DNS servers are not configured to listen on 
interface (alias), where LinuxDirector is bound to (VIP).

The question is; can this be done?  I know with local-node
feature enabled I can have (Vip) -> (Rip)
but I was under impression that DNS that runs on
must also listen on for the packets to be accepted
and processed?

I am trying to minimize the setup to a single machine... with
VIPs and RIPs virtually assigned to the same physical hardware.

Your insight is very much appreciated!
