Ive been trying to find a way to do this... I have eth0 on the network (eth0 has ip I also have 5 aliases
on the same network with these ips:


Id like to round-robin the source ip on a per connection basis, meaning,
if I ssh to it may come from eth0:1, if I then ssh to it will come from eth0:2, etc.  So the destination ssh
machines will see different source IPs.

Is this possible with netfilter/iproute2?  The only potential problem I
see is with the arp table, but I also dont understand this stuff as well
as I would like.
