    umbraco/ping to loadbalanced address

    The logs are showing loads of error messages (below).

    I wonder why umbraco pings to the loadbalanced address. Is there a way to configure this behaviour so that this server pings it's real ip address?

    [Thread 119] Error in ping(http://ourloadbalancedaddress:443/umbraco/ping.aspx) -> System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond     at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.DoConnect(EndPoint endPointSnapshot, SocketAddress socketAddress)     at System.Net.ServicePoint.ConnectSocketInternal(Boolean connectFailure, Socket s4, Socket s6, Socket& socket, IPAddress& address, ConnectSocketState state, IAsyncResult asyncResult, Int32 timeout, Exception& exception)     --- End of inner exception stack trace ---     at System.Net.WebClient.DownloadDataInternal(Uri address, WebRequest& request)     at System.Net.WebClient.DownloadString(Uri address)     at umbraco.presentation.keepAliveService.PingUmbraco(Object sender)

    Add the site's url to the machines hosts file as a loopback

    I don't like 'fixes' that mess with the host file as they get forgotten...

    I've looked through the source here:

    all it does is call /umbraco/ping.aspx ( a plain text aspx that says "I'm alive" ) every 5 minutes.

    To me it looks like the keepAliveService should be removed and app pool configuration should do its job.
