So it looks like packets are hitting the chain, just not matching a 
rule.  What command did you use to set these up (one DNAT and 
corresponding SNAT should do)?

You don't have to SNAT every IP.  Just masquerading everything will work 
(and applies to connections initiated by the servers--DNAT should take 
care of both directions for incoming connections).  In fact, maybe 
attacking one rule for one server at a time would help.

I assume the firewall has aliases for all the 204.x addresses on its 
outside interface.
