Hi Tim,

For LocalNode the syntax (off the top of my head) would be 
something like

ipvsadm -A -t $VIP -s rr
ipvsadm -a -t $VIP -r
ipvsadm -a -t $VIP -r
ipvsadm -a -t $VIP -r

where $VIP is the externally advertised IP.

In your ipvsadm table (above), by the time a packet is at, it has already been delivered and beyond where 
ipvs can mess with it.
