Two NICS with same IP and same client IP

But if you giving eth0 IP addresses on two different subnets then you could just plug everything that's on eth1 onto the same network as eth0.
Just because it's Linux doesn't mean you can redefine IP routing and expect it to work.

I have two identical test benches, in which one box has a fixed IP
address, hence I can't change the subnets.
What is more, this box always accesses the same IP address for the server.
Yeah, not so easy, but hey, it's Linux, so it's possible!
