Sorry Matthew I have to disagree with you in some part, where Horms said "It
allows the (actually requires) the return path to the real servers not to go
through the Linux Director." I believe he was not saying it wouldn't work!
more it is not a "valid/supported" configuration with the return traffic
going back through the director.
Yes it works as I myself supported a system running LVS-TUN that was miss
configured (intentionally) to return to the client via the director to
overcome a firewall constraint. However it is now running LVS-NAT in a
"valid" configuration (and now no sign of bottlenecks as before).
