I think my problem is actually more basic than this. The problem
actually occurs on the base system as well and I think it's because
all the IPs are on the same subnet, then the kernel assumes to use the
primary IP as the source address. For the sake and usefulness of the
mail archives I will end this thread here and start another one with a
more appropriate title, not before researching to see if this can be
done with the routing table or if I need to use ipfw to re-write the
source address.
