Establishing an ethernet link between the two servers would sort of disrupt the whole concept, which is to prevent *any* network access from outside into the secure part of the network. This is the (strongly simplified) topology:


This is really more of a security-question than clustering (IMO).
Have you thought about a so called "air-gap" device, like Whale (www.whalecommunications.com) makes them?


It uses a SCSI-switch to "shuttle" data between two networks.
