IP_NONLOCALBIND.

"P_NONLOCALBIND disables the check that bind() usually makes that the address is one that is assigned to an interface on this machine. It allows transparent proxies to pretend to be other machines. How the packet GET to that machine is a problem solved elsewhere, smart routers, ipfw fwd, etc."
