There are only a few requirements that all servers must meet to use Windows NLB:

Have at least one network interface configured for Load Balancing.
Use TCP/IP.
Be on the same subnet.
Share a common (virtual) IP address.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

If you really need something like what you are asking, you'll need to look at 3rd party products like the Big-IP from F5 Networks:
