I am trying to configure an Alteon 2208 to load balance an HTTP application
through many servers, I never touched an Alteon switch before so this is my
first time working on such a thing.

As a first step I am testing the connection just with one real server to
understand how it works and then I'll add other servers to my real servers

after checking the documentation I was able do this configuration, from my
switch I was able to ping the real server and the virtual server, but from
an out side pc I am not able to ping the virtual server nor manage it from a

would really appreciate if any Alteon guru give some help.
