As a side note, I've used Cisco's CSS, F5's stuff, Alteon, and Foundry. Out
of all of them that I've used, the Foundry had the least problems and had a
nicely structured config.
Foundry seems to be fine for www traffic, but has serious issues with
handling long FTP sessions. FTP works while you're in your stickiness
period (up to 2 hours on the non-XL serveriron), but after that it will
forget which FTP server has the control session and send your next data
session to another server which won't recognise it. Last time I spoke to
Foundry, this was still considered a "feature".
Do other vendors handle this properly?
