No matter what you use, be it Net::Telnet or IO::Socket or the LWP modules, if you connect to '' and that hostname is load balanced, you're going to get different servers handling the request, sure. Sorry, I didn't realize that was going to be an issue (it's the first time you brought it up). If you can access each server individually by IP, perhaps you can simply pass that URL to the LWP modules: e.g. If you're using virtual hosting such that the Host: header makes a difference, I guess you're better off using IO::Socket and speaking HTTP yourself. If there isn't a way you can reach an arbitrary server directly, I don't see how any of the methods presented can help you, as they'd all be influenced by the load-balancing setup.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
