SUMMARY: Multi-homed server question

Hi gurus!

Unfortunately there seems to be no easy way to force packets to be sent
via the incoming interface.
I need this, because our firewall doesn't want to receive answers from
an interface which is not the interface where the request was sent.

There were some suggestions:
-using static routes; ok if you have a limited network topology
-setting ip_strict_dst_multihoming; this only drops special packets
-using ipfilter; might work

I think using ipfilter might solve the problem, but I didn't have the
time to check it in detail.
