Applicable snip of netstat -lnp output:

Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 10.10.10.10:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2836/sshd

No, ip_forward probably doesn't apply, but this is my first bug post so I figured I'd better include anything remotely possible :)

Jared,

I can't shake the feeling that the service didn't actually bind to eth1, but instead bound to INADDR_ANY. You can find out with 'netstat -lnp'. Would you
mind posting the output?

I don't think the ip_forward flag applies here.
