Well, I have solved my problem, and this without the doomsday method of
the gentleman that answered my email. Using IPChains, I simply set up a
rule with the concerned servers with the RETURN statement, which drops
the packets out of the rules before they hit the REDIRECT line. They
then get forwarded and treated as a direct connection.

Thanks again,
