I have 2 server endpoints that I need to be load balanced, 

My VIP is http://server 

and 

http://server1:28080/ and http://server2:8080 are my endpoints  

I am hearing that it isn't possible since they are listening on different ports. Can you help me .

Hi It's not possible to use multiple ports in a load balancing rule for a backend pool . It's also not possible for health probe configuration. However you can define multiple frontends even with the same IP so you can have multiple rules with for each different ports.The frontend (aka VIP) is defined by a 3-tuple comprised of an IP address (public or internal), a transport protocol (UDP or TCP), and a port number from the load balancing rule.
