Hi Ben,
I had the exact same problem in March (see The
hacky solution I came up with was to use the following NAT rule:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -d -p udp --dport 12345
-j SNAT --to

This way the packets claimed to come from a foreign IP address and were
accepted. However, when the packets hit an ingress filter on their way,
this will fail.

Will you push this to DaveM for inclusion?
