I wasn't saying he should put any in: I was saying that his problem
might be that there's a rule there that's changing the address. Also,
I'm talking about iptables (i.e. netfilter), not ip routing tables.

Actually, you could fix a lot of it with ip routing tables, if you use
policy routing (from x to y route to z with source a). I was considering
playing around with this, but it's more complex. This is yet another
place where having an netfilter_ctx patch would be helpful: for marking
packets so they correspond to ip routing rules (from context q route to
z with source a).

What I'm currently doing is doing SNAT on all vserver packets: that
gives the most flexibility, with the vservers residing on a private
internal ip. It also lets me share IPs better for vservers: I can have
one vserver doing port 80, and one doing port 25 on the same ip, but I
don't have to worry about one of them accidentally turning on a service
and interfering with another one, 'cause they have different private
IPs. It's not ideal for all setups, but then I'm not doing virtual
hosting really, so I have differnet needs.

For example, on a third server (completely separate from the host/vserver), the httpd access_log shows entries from the host IP, and not the vserver IP, when accesses are coming from an app running in the vserver context.
