“Hate” is a strong word, but in this case I think it’s appropriate…
I’m so f’ing sick of trying to screw around with network/routing problems with the new servers that I’m thinking about selling all my computers and going into construction.
Trying to fix arp routing issues is more than I ever wanted to know about networking… For example:

Jun 17 10:34:13 lb1 last message repeated 157 times
Well that’s just super awesome… how about you just stop replying to the wrong network you little bitch of a server???!!?
The problem is that server A needs to talk to server B, but only THROUGH a local “gateway” (the gateway is a hardware load balancer). So fine… Server A goes through the gateway no problem. The gateway talks to server B no problem, but then server B tries to respond to server A directly (since it’s local) instead of going back through the gateway, and then server A doesn’t know where in the hell this incoming traffic is from because it never talked to server B (directly) to start with.
Computers are gay sometimes.
