IBM Dispatcher X iptables AND linux advanced routing

how can this be achieved? When I have three boxes with the CLUSTERIP
enabled, and each box is connected to a switch and they all have the same IP
address, how will balancing work in such case.
I am sorry for my bad understanding of clustering concepts. Can somebody
give me a hint where to look for ( I would prefer a HowTo explaining how to
set up two boxes and load balancing between those ).

Maybe take a look at the ClusterIP feature available in newer kernel
versions. Form the iptable man page:
This module allows you to configure a simple cluster of nodes that
share a certain IP and MAC address without an explicit load
balancer in front of them. Connections are statically distributed
between the nodes in this cluster.
Another possible solution would be IPVS , which implements
transport-layer load balancing.
