Could be :) Here's an example (applications may change):
* I want sendmail to bind to address 22.214.171.124, so that outgoing connections
have a source of 126.96.36.199.
* I want named to bind to address 188.8.131.52, so that outgoing connections
have a source of 184.108.40.206.
The potential problem i might be inventing is that if the machine has
a default gateway on the same subnet as 220.127.116.11, will packets with
a source address 18.104.22.168 - effectively a different LAN - ever reach that
default gateway? Is it sufficient that the linux box knows that there
is *one* way out, even if it's on a different subnet?
