Bug Description

From the network node, you cannot reach instances on their floating IP, because the DNAT rule is only in PREROUTING. Since the destination address is local (having been added to FLAGS.public_interface) this rule is not applied and the request instead ends up on the host.

This may sound pointless (why would anyone be initiating connections from the network node), by the way, but it comes in very handy during testing.
