Do you know how source address selection works when the user tries to
connect to a remote location yet doesn't specify a specific source

Once you understand source address selection, the next thing
you need to do is:

1) consider how you might want to make that configurable
by the user
2) what the default behavior should be
3) what kind of ARP behavior is necessary in order for
these various configurations to work
