    I think the biggest confusion comes from the fact that ip-adresses are not
    bound to interfaces, but to the host.
    When I assign an ip to i.e. dummy0 (and interface is up), I would expect
    it to work from inside this host, but not from the outside, as I
    would expect an address on eth0 not to be reachable on eth1 unless I use
    ip_forward==1 .

    After painfull hours of debugging I now think I know how it works (or not
    works in my setup here), but for me it's a bug (some may call it a ugly
    feature).
