I have not seen any reply to this one... the
statement is a bit unclear BUT I am pretty sure
this is related to the VMA algorithm of the
Alteon box. VMA is some kind of internal
processor selection for a specific source IP. The
problem here is that the distribution is as well
depending on the destination port of a request.
Some more details and some snapshots of the
session table should sched some light on the issue.
