Yes I am seeing a problem with this setup.
When host A connects to 192.168.0.2, the connection looks like it came
from 192.168.1.1, rather than 192.168.0.1. I don't want my app on host B
binding on listening on 192.168.1.0/24 interface. I want the connection
to be going via the internal loopback only. I also want to keep the
iptables rules relatively sane and intuitive.
Normally, this would be implicit by the network scope, but since lo is
different and setting 192.168.0.1/24 on it would make the local host
respond on the entire range, I need an alternative solution that would
work more sensibly. Would using a dummy network device work for this? Or
is there a better way?
