I have never used this method for this case but similar cases before. I
think you can solve the interface problem by adding an additional
interface, providing it any address, creating routes for your HOME_NET
to use that interface, add different routes for the network you use to
manage out the actual interface.
If you use the example provided below then add an iptables/whatever rule
do drop any packets arriving on the response interface into the bit
bucket to prevent any traffic from entering using the injection interface.
Also drop into the bit bucket any that have a source or dest address in
the 127.0.0.0 net to prevent possibly polluting the wire with loopback
It will be a few weeks before I can get around to testing it for this
case so if anyone wants to give it a try and confirm functionality "that
would be great".
Don't forget... When you report your test results back to the list do
not forget that the TPS report has a new format, didn't you read the memo.
