I defined 2 servers with the same host name, but 2 differents
addresses into my WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\drivers\etc\hosts file.

If a server fails my exchanges are routed on the second server.

This system is known as "round robin". Is it implemented into (I use
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv:1.8.1.23) Gecko/
20090825 SeaMonkey/1.1.18).

Round robin was implmeented into the Apache HttpClient's class. It was
just done as

- getting an array with all adresses defined with the same server name
into the hosts file.
- creating a socket for each adress . If it fails, try with the next
otherwise return the socket.

If it exists, is it the same implementation... I looked into netwerk,
nsSocket , nsSocketTransportService, nsSocketProviderService... But I
didn't fail anything regarding round robin.

Could someone help me


thank's a lot
