Does this include something like stunnel?
Can anybody on this list share operating experience?

Ok. I think this is incompatible with my current setup:
I use drbd together with heartbeat. One network has a public service-IP, 
the other is just a crossover cable. DRBD uses the public IPs (not the 
service IP). The reason for the extra crossover-cable-network is, I want 
to make sure no "both active" state is created in case of a 
network/patch/switch failure.
Have to look into it...

Best Regards
