ryan from what I understand you need to enable source-nat on the remote
server sub config and that server would never receive traffic unless the
other real server will go down.
Let me see if I can find the way

Subject: [load balancing] Cascading switches off of a Foundry switch
We have a Foundry ServerIron XL with 8 ports on it... it's wired into
the rest of our network with a spanning-tree configuration on ports 1
and 8... logically, it's off of a HP ProCurve 4000M, which also has
another ProCurve off of it, and there's a couple other switches off of
Basically, what we need to do is be able to have the Foundry
load-balance traffic to servers that are not directly plugged into it...
we've tried the obvious thing (Just Doing It), and it recognizes that
the destination is up, but it doesn't let connections switch over.
Is there a config option I'm missing? :-)
Config for the Foundry switch, sans unrelated/secured bits:
server sticky-age 10
server remote-name zorak 220.127.116.11
server virtual mail 18.104.22.168
port telnet sticky
bind telnet zorak telnet
enable telnet password .....
enable super-user-password .....
