RE: [Linux-cluster] LVS: Not as a gateway?

What is confusing me is that everything on my network is behind the firewall, 
so NAT to begin with. Yet, the LVS setup requires a public address and a 
private one. 

Both LVS machines do have two NIC's. Both LVS and real servers use the same 
gateway, for example. The client connections are sent directly to 
the real servers by using 'DIRECT' connections, 

I've set up LVS with as the public floating IP that clients 
connect to. Yet, I keep getting these errors I noted in another reply.

What am I missing here? I've not set up anything outside of LVS however 
because that's not clear to me. Should I be setting up on my 
second LVS interface manually?
