I need to send a packet to myself, and it has to go through the network. It seems linux will go to great lengths to keep you from doing this. ...

Packet re-routing around loopback
The following setups have resulted in the same problem:
-One eth device, multiple pseudo addresses (eth0:0 to eth0:1)
-Two eth devices, multiple addresses
-Routing table with no route/route to the specified device/route forced through the second device
It seems the packet never even sees the routing table, linux just decides the message is for itself and it never goes. How do I turn off routing to itself or configure a connection through the outside?
Any ideas, anyone?
