I am back to trying to figure out how to make this work. I'm tried source
based routing, and it does not work (it routes internally).
I read the help on SO_DONTROUTE, but it seems to make the kernel not able
to send to a router. I would like to be able to route, ie port a -> router ->
I already bind to a particular port and IP, and use policy based routing
(source based routing) to make sure the packet is sent out the correct
I just need to find the routing logic that notices the destination IP is local
and tell it to quit looking (probably for a particular socket, as I can
see how this could break applications who didn't expect it)
I dug through the code once before looking for this, and didn't find
what I needed. Can anyone suggest the right files and/or methods to
