RD Gateway farm failover

Hi experts,

I have implemented a RD Gateway farm in a test environment using NLB.    Clients are load balanced across the two gateway servers but the failover doesn't seem to work.   I stop the service on one gateway and the clients don't reconnect to the other gateway, it just reaches the 20 re-connection attempts and ends the rdp session

Are there any requirements for network latency etc for an RD Gateway farm?  

thanks in advance

the answer to this is that on the NLB cluster properties you set the client affinity to none
