In the LVS/DR and LVS/TUN clusters, we can see that the VIP address is shared by load balancer and all real servers. In order to make the LVS/DR and LVS/TUN clusters work, load balancer should broadcast the VIP address to accept incoming packets for virtual service, the real servers only use the VIP address to process the packets for VIP locally.
