The piranha-gui service must be running on the
primary LVS router to use the Piranha Configuration Tool. To
configure the cluster, you minimally need a text-only Web browser, such
as links. If you are accessing the LVS router from
another machine, you also need an ssh connection to
the primary LVS router as the root user.
While configuring the primary LVS router it is a good idea to keep a
concurrent ssh connection in a terminal window. This
connection provides a secure way to restart pulse and
other services, configure network packet filters, and monitor
/var/log/messages during trouble shooting.
The next four sections walk through each of the configuration pages
of the Piranha Configuration Tool and give instructions on
using it to set up the LVS cluster.
