The project that I’m currently working on will respond with a 418 if you’re using a subdomain. HAProxy pings my webserver evey two seconds to see if they’re alive and it is currently returning a 503. The problem is that if you load the server with polecat.example.c66.com it will, as it should, return a 418 I’m a Teapot. When you ping the IP 123.456.789.10 it properly responds with a 200.
Is there a way for me to tell HAProxy to ping the IP and not the domain name?
