Load balancer query

hi guys,

I've attached a basic PDF document that explains the environment our web hosting company has set up for us.

Basically, from a windows client you open the RD tool and you enter the IP address 10.35.160.10 (please note: 10.35.160.10 is a virtual IP which terminates on the Content Switch for load balancing )

Enter your credentials and you're logged on to a terminal services session.
Now, what's happening is that we are ALWAYS being directed to the same TS server 1 and not Terminal Server 2.

I believe that this content switch is a Linux box or maybe I'm wrong. My question is, can I still go ahead and create a Terminal Services session broker on a Windows 2008 box in order for these TS sessions to become load balanced and for our users to get directed equally between TS1 and TS2?

If I did so, would that not create two load balancers? (i.e. one linux box load balancer and one windows 2008 one?).
Thanks again for all of your help,

I would rather correct the load balancer configurations than creating the service session broker. As far as I understand, the servers are mainly used as web servers. Usually the network load balancer is configured to load balance the traffic coming on port 80 and 443 only (if you are using SSL). Other than that, the ports are not balanced.

I think your best bet is to contact your web hosting company and confirm if the port 3389 (RDP) is load balanced also through the load balancer or not.
