I'm not a CentOS user so I can not say for sure. However I would expect
that (despite what you say) that there is some sort of IPTables stateful
packet inspection going on from your 10/ network to your 192.168/
network. If this is indeed the case and the rule is a basic state of
ESTABLISHED, RELATED, then any traffic from 10/ to 192.168/ AFTER you
sent traffic from 192.168/ to 10/ would be considered RELATED and thus
However, if as you say, there are no IPTables rules in play at all
something else is interfering with your traffic, what it would be, I'm
Try running iptables-save to make sure that there are absolutely no
rules in effect any where.
