If a packet has a source IP of 10.10.12.30 and is routed out the eth1
interface, rewrite the source IP to 126.96.36.199.

Don't do it from anywhere on the LAN. Only do it from 10.10.12.30. It
won't work from any other IP. Perhaps you wanted to use a different
source specification, like "-s 10.10.12.0/24" or "-s 10.0.0.0/8"?

DNS might also be a factor. Only the firewall machine and 10.10.12.30
would be able to get out to any external resolvers with that rule.
