Connecting SAPconsole to a Web Dispatcher rather than directly to an app server


We have a very old SAPConsole set up (telnet) that we use in our warehouses. Currently, the SAPConsole is pointed directly to one of our app servers rather than to our Web Dispatcher for load balancing. We'd like to load balance the warehouse users, but my basis team is concerned that since all the traffic would be coming from a single IP (the server that runs SAPConsole) that the load balancer would direct all traffic to the same node anyway.

I know we should upgrade to ITSMobile (and we've started talking about it) but I'm wondering if we can change this in the short term to make our systems a little more resilient.

Does anyone have experience with this? Is it possible? Or should we just hang on until we can move over to ITSMobile?

Thanks in advance.
