Which failover technique?

   I am using an lvs-tun on a debian system. Im attempting to setup
director/server failover in a "fixed arp" situation. I have installed
keepalived for healthchecking/failover,  but it doesnt seem to be working.
Is this a valid method for an lvs-tun, or only for NAT-ting?

In each director I am using single NIC cards, and I would like to monitor
the public ips of the realservers. Is it extremely necessary to add another
NIC card to avoid the tunl between the DIP and the realserver?
