Foundry seems to be fine for www traffic, but has serious issues with 
handling long FTP sessions.  FTP works while you're in your stickiness 
period (up to 2 hours on the non-XL serveriron), but after that it will 
forget which FTP server has the control session and send your next data 
session to another server which won't recognise it.  Last time I spoke to 
Foundry, this was still considered a "feature".

Do other vendors handle this properly?
