Except that my box isn't allowed to talk to anything via EXTERNAL_GW; 
packets routed out through it, except those coming from the VIPs, are 
silently dropped. I'm only allowed to talk to the outside world when 
going through <INTERNAL_GW>.

Finding out why, or getting this changed, would mean putting in a work 
order with the firewall guys and waiting a few weeks.
