We've installed two LM-2600s in our DMZ to load balance 2 internet services.
The LMs are on a private IP subnet, as well as the real servers. When I want to add the public IP to the virtual service, I get an error "Virtual service not on available network".
To resolve this, we're thinking of these two options:
1. Add a public IP to the eth0 of the LMs, under 'Additional addresses'. Eth0 is the only NIC in use.
2. Give the virtual services private IPs and NAT the public IPs on the firewall down to the private IP on the LMs.
Would both of these options work? Is there even another way of doing it? Since we don't have that many, we'd like to avoid using up an additional public IP for this.
Possibly unrelated: Another real server is in our normal LAN (different subnet) and so the virtual service accessing that is set to allow real servers in other networks.
Thanks in advance
