Good, that's a good way to start :)

For HTTP there is no application banner - you connect, you send
something like "GET / HTTP/1.0" and hit return, twice.
What happens (using HTTP, ie. port 80 instead of telnet, port 23 in LVS)
if you point a web browser at your VIP?
Note also that your client *must* be on a different network to your
realserver for NAT to work. There are some additional, complex ways to
make it work if the clients and realservers are on the same network (IP
network, that is, ie. in the same broadcast domain).
