        I tested telnet with replacing the prefsrc, as result,
'ip route get telnet_server_ip_on_eth1' returns local_ip_from_eth0
as src. telnetd listens as usually to, incoming connection
comes (IP1->IP2), so the server always gets two different IPs...

        Nooo :) 'ping -I IP1 IP2' or if you set IP2's prefsrc to IP1
then even 'ping IP2' works

        At least, we have two alternatives :) I'm still not sure
whether the "loop" feature will need some tuning in other netsource
