Bleh, sorry, I meant IP. It will theoretically support UDP, ICMP, etc
(as long as it's encapsulated within an IP packet  it should work). I'm
primarily testing with TCP/IP.

Ethernet-level emulation is significantly cleaner but it will not work without
either kernel patches or a kernel module. I'm looking for a 100% user space

What do your routing tables look like right before and right after you
run those two commands?

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
