i've set session affinity for a project, in order to ensure that all requests of an uses is served from the same node.
but, now logged user can acces the same page from different devices at the same time, eg. smathphone and pc.
So they virtually can be served from 2 differents nodes.
Is there a way to interact with asp.net and nlb in order to redirect a request in a specific node?

NLB is a very primitive loadbalancer.
You well need something more modern to balance the load and redirect based on Layer 7 traffic.
ARR can be used for this. Best to be on a separate machine in front of the web servers.

thanks for the answer, i don't know why i' ve never heard of arr before,
in any case, can i install arr on the same servers i want to balance?
I've installed arr i've seen that it can balance based on server variable, but where i can specify this rule?
i've read here
that nlb is still necessasy with arr to balance the arr servers itself
so we need 2 or more servers with arr + nlb
+ the content servers
it is correct?
