LVS-NAT: realserver as client (Graeme Fowler Solution)

We have an LVS server for testing which is handling 2 VIPs through LVS-NAT
(using keepalived). Each of the VIPs currently points to 1 real server. Both
real-servers are on the same internal network.
VIP1 -> Realserver1
VIP2 -> Realserver2
We'd now like Realserver2 to be able to connect to Realserver1 via VIP1.
I was able to accomplish this following the solution provided by Graeme
However, external connections to VIP1 no longer work while that solution is
in place. Dropping the lo:0 interface assigned to VIP1 on Realserver1 fixes
this, but then breaks Realserver2 from connecting.
I feel like I'm missing something but I'm at a loss. I can provide more
detailed information if needed.
