L4 based Load Balancing @ Software based routers

With IOS version 12.4.11T you can finally utilize not just the per destination (or per packet) based CEF load balancing, but also L4 port based load balancing!

So far you were able to use this feature only at high end switches like Cisco 4500 and Cisco 6500. Now the 12.4.11T brings this feature to standard software based routers as well. Officially (Cisco Doc) Cisco 800, 1700, 1800, 2600, 2800, 3200, 3600, 3700, 3800, 7200, 7301, AS5000, 7200 7301 series Routers, MWR, MWAM series routers are supported.
