I tried setting up directorB with a tunl0 interface and can no longer get to
directorB at all.
One issue I am having difficulty comprehending is the interaction between
VS-NAT, VS-TUN, and iptables.
DirectorB uses iptables to setup a nat for all outbound traffic for it's
realservers so they can DNS, Mail, etc. DirectorB also is configured as
VS-NAT so inbound requests can get to the realservers and back out.
DirectorB is the only router for its realservers. This all worked fine.
Now, directorA wants to send an encapsulated packet to directorB. If I put a
tunl0 interface on directorB pointing to the NAT address of the realserver,
does ipip decapsulate before NATing?
I would expect the packet exchange like this:
Am I totally lame on this?
