Subject RE: [users@httpd] Q) apache + W2008R2 + NLB

Hi Yehuda,

Apache works fine with Microsoft NLB.  You can set the Listen directive to the NLB IP address
and you should have no problem binding to that interface.

Good luck.

I suggest you get the pre-compiled version from Apache Lounge (or 64-bit) instead of from
Installing it in a path with no spaces on the C: drive (I use C:\Webserv) will make sure you
do not run into trouble later because of those issues.
I have never had the need for NLB, but there should be no reason it would not work (Source).
