Hehe, I have to remember to think about machine configuration when it
comes down to routing problems ;)

Well, with the port forwarding rules set up automatically, that's it,
you're done.  In this setup though, the servers can only receive
connections and talk that way, it can't make any connections unless
you permit outbound rules from the DMZ.  That's the only thing you
"might" have to do if the application on the server1/2 needs to make
an outbound connection (for ex, web servers do NOT, FTP servers DO)...
