[Gluster-users] Client tries to access storage network

I set up a distributed replicated volume on two nodes with 2 NIC each. 
The idea is to have gluster perform synchronization on one NIC and serve 
clients on the other.

For simplicity say we have a client: test.client and the nodes, which 
have node1.client and node1.gluster and node2.client and node2.gluster, 
respectively. .client and .gluster are different class C networks 
assigned to dedicated NIC. There is no route from .client to .gluster.

I peered the nodes using the .gluster network. When I now try to mount 
the volume from test.client:

mount -f glusterfs node1.client:/test ~/mnt

the mount fails. Looking at my firewall I see test.client:privileged 
attempting to contact node1.gluster:24007 and node2.gluster:24007. But 
I'd want to run the client traffic through node[12].client. Otherwise 
the second NIC appears to be worthless.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for your help,
