where is the default gw pointing, your director or elsewhere?
for the gateway problem, you just have to route packets from VIP:LVSed_port
through anywhere but the director. If you want to route packets through
the director, you can use Julian's martian modification (shared forward) patch.
However there's all the other problems you have.
Presumably you could use LVS-NAT. The director will be able to route to the
RIP of the realserver. You then have to arrange for packets from RIP:LVS'ed_port
to go through the director.
