Re: [SLUG] Source IP address


Is it possible to use iproute2 or something similar to use a particular
source address when sending to a particular subnet? (2.4 kernel)

The default behaviour is for a packet exiting ethN to have the source
IP address of ethN.

The router on ethN is perfectly entitled to discard packets coming
off that subnet which have the wrong source address (and the router
should be configured to do so).
