In my case I do not need to fake the public IP of my Firewall, since both
servers (should) connect using their private IP's directly over VPN.

However, per default, the vlserver shows the location of the corresponding
volume not on the VPN interface, but on the public interface so all AFS
regarding volume location bypasses the VPN.

As solution, I put the public IP of the server into the NetRestrict and
now AFS runs fast across the whole cell. :)

Thanks, Ralf
