It's easier to just use a second machine: With two machines, you can have one 
webserver, one single fastroute rule, and on the second machine put simple 
ipnat forwarding for the port your server lives on. In this way, you don't 
have to fight with multiple default routes, don't have to fight with any 
external software, and you also don't have to worry about multiple dhcp 
servers fiddling around with each other's settings.
