Network Deployment web farm not working!

I'm trying to create a Web Farm for testing Websphere clustering.

Here are the steps I've taken:
I've created three VMware images: one with WAS 5.1 with Network Deployment, and two with WAS 5.1.
I've made a cluster for the two WAS 5.1 images
I've created a simple WAR file which I've installed as an Enterprise Application.
I attached the Ent App to the cluster.

Through a browser, I can access the enterprise application on each of WAS 5.1 images. BUT I cannot access it through the main Network Deployment account which was the whole point!

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

What do you mean by "cannot access through the main Network Deployment account"?  Does that mean you are having authentication problems?

You need to federate the nodes to the deployment manager. You can either login to the network deployment admin console and add the nodes from the System Administration menu--> manage cells--> add node.

Or you may use the command line addNode.

Please let me know if you need an example.

Federating the node using either admin console or command line tools as suggested by me above shall help the user.
