Set Cluster-IP to use for outgoing traffic

4 votes

It would be great if we could configure the IP to be used for outgoing data traffic. This would ensure that all clients are always contacted with the same IP even in the event of a failover.

This would solve all the usual problems that an IP change implies (mk_logwatch,...) as well as considerably simplifying the configuration of firewalls, clients, ACLs etc. in larger environments.
