    If you need to redirect the whole set of IP services, you would have
    to do packet encapsulation with nat (you can do this with arrowpoint, radware
    and probably hydraweb)

    If you just need http redirected, you can use a single web server (or cleverly
    configure the F5's internal webserver) to send an HTTP redirect to the new
    IP. But remember, that's http only.
