This article describes how to load balance Telnet using Windows NT Load Balancing Service (WLBS).


To load balance Telnet:
  1. Configure a port rule on all cluster hosts with a port range from 23 to 23, and choose TCP as the protocol.
  2. Click Multiple Hosts, and then click None for the Affinity value.
NOTE: A Telnet session spans just one TCP connection, so Affinity is not needed.
