Unlike redirects, relays doesn't require the firewall to be enabled, nor that the load balancer is the servers' default route (gateway). In fact, the most common scenario is to perform layer 4 load balancing with the firewall disabled (removing the <tt>firewall</tt> configuration) and to not use the load balancer as a router. Please keep in mind that if the firewall is enabled (simply check if there are any firewall rules in the configuration), you most likely have to add rules on your own allowing traffic to the relay. The topology would look something like this
< -> Server1
Internet -> Router -> Switch <-> Halon
< -> Server2
To add a layer 3 load balancer, follow these steps
