We are wanting to have a primary "test" http proxy that we are doing some unique stuff with. We want this proxy to be the primary so using WPAD we would want to deliver this as the primary to always use and the other one as the secondary(two hostnames). Will this work or will browsers randomly choose one of the two and load balance.
I thought of maybe returning one DNS entry and then putting two ips in that DNS and having the order sent back to browsers always being the same which would work but I heard sometimes firefox keeps trying to use the failed entry in DNS on every request where IE actually switches and keeps using secondary from then on.(I guess I could try one step further of hearbeating to the 1st proxy and changing the DNS entry....yuck on work I didn't want to have to do though).
any way to do this with just WPAD?
