Currently, the best way to do this would be to tweak the IP address each hosts
resolves the name of the storage server to.  You can do this either using DNS
views, or by adding entries to /etc/hosts file.  This way, the director
resolves the sd hostname to the 10 net address, but the client resolves the
hostname to the 192 address and uses that connection instead.
