Virtual Server Settings

Only advanced users should change the options on this screen. Virtual Server implements transport-layer load balancing, so called Layer-4 switching. Virtual Server on a host acts as a load balancer before a cluster of real servers, it can direct requests for TCPi/UDPi based services to the real servers, and makes services of the real servers to appear as a virtual service on a single IPi address.
