[c-nsp] Sharing router uplinks?

The gateway is one of my issues with it.  I can't really tell what they expect. They might be expecting that there is no traffic to the server from the downstream side (a bad assumption), or that the core router will just "handle it" (icmp redirect maybe, except I like to turn that off).

Which of the two devices do you set as the default gateway on the web server?  (rhetorical question)
