sounds like that isn't what you're doing though.

In my case, my real servers can't use the director as the default gateway,

why not?

can you use the DIP as the next hop for packets from RIP:80?

so I'd like the director to rewrite packets to the real servers with the director's local IP as the source address.

you'll have your work cut out for you. Tell us why packets from RIP:80 can't be sent to the DIP and we'll see if we can't figure out another solution first
