If IIS is shut-down, and would like to have multiple IW servers
Is there a way to make that invisible to users..
EG:
mysite.com/index.htm will go to IWServer #1
mysite.com/login.htm will go to IWServer #2
etc...

If different ports are used then it has to be invisible to user as they only place the website URL

IN addition.. a redirect between servers has to be transparent to users

You should have a "starter" page that will generate cllick-through URLs for visitors that get random URLs (from the list of valid URLs), perhaps based on some ping distance between the servers and the client (although that's not easy to implement, since it requires the servers to ping to the visitor).

Anyway, one starter page, with a list of all possibe URLs, but only one visible, and then the user either clicks on the URL or gets automatically redirected. Once a visitor is "connected" to a server, he/she should never move from that server. But the initial "contact" can decide on which server to work on (depending on the load of the different server machines).

Yes, that can be done. Based on the country you can make sure the redirection is to a different URL for the real IntraWeb server.
