I won't rule out the problem with my network, but I've hit a roadblock
now, so any help is greatly appreciated.

I am running a linux bridge with two servers behind the bridge. I am
running LVS in the bridge , and have ipvsadm rule to loadbalance
between both servers. Both servers are configured with IPv6 addresses.
Now If i send a packet to VIP from a system which belongs to same
network, I am getting response directly from server IP instead of VIP
IP and this packet will be dropped by the client. I tested the same
with IPv4 and it works perfectly fine. But IPv6 has some problem due
to which source NATing is not done in LVS for outbound packets. Any
