Thanks all. To be clear: I'm dealing with IPIP packets, not GRE
packets. Linux LVS emits IPIP encapsulated packets when the target
server is non-local. I have no option to emit GRE or another kind of
tunnel packet.

Also, I'd prefer not to terminate the IPIP tunnel on the firewall. I
can, but I'd prefer not to. What I want to do is look inside at the
packet encapsulated by IPIP. Even if I have to hand-crank the rules in
terms of byte X inside the packet should be value Y.

Thanks again,
Bill Herrin
