question regarding DR and uploads

Hi,
I setup an LVS-DR and for testing purposes decided to load balance SSHD.
While watching tcpdump on the Director's nic I noticed that all traffic 
from the client's ssh session is bouncing off the
Director to the real server.  This seems like the correct behavior
since the client only knows the arp address of the Director but this is
not optimal behavior for load balancing upload traffic.
I was wondering if there was any way to bypass the Director once
a connection is established?

Thanks,
Paul
