Yes, its a rather complex network topology that I'm dealing with.  All
3 machines in question are able to talk to each other.   The CIP can
ping the RIP and the DIP.   The RIP can ping the CIP and the DIP.  
And the DIP can ping the CIP and RIP.

This what I'm worried about.  From what I understand using LVS-DR you
can't use the DIP as the default gw.  Right now the RIP is *not* using
the DIP as its default gw, it's using a router instead.  Maybe I'm
confused on this ...  could you explain a little more please?
