It's the address of the machine which handles packets
whose routing is not handled by the local routing table
Which brings up another point; can you
send me the output of netstat -an for the director, and
the two real-servers (with a note telling me which IP's
are which machines)?

You're making it too complicated. What happens with telnet?

the default gw for the director can be anything at all really,
as long as packets get to the right places. The default route
for the real-servers has to be anything but the director (look
in the HOWTO).
