No, the idea is not to choose the ouput interface on the curl system.
But to specify the ip address of the TARGET system.
Just think about the following architecture:
Now suppose you can reach each Web server individually because you know each IP address.
When you use curl in the normal way:
You get the response from one server in the pool.
And for security reason the web server refuse:
So I add the support of:
curl --remote-ip 1.2.3.W1 http://www.test.com/
Which works fine here, I can test each web server in the pool.
In fact I do that for the integration of individual test in Nagios (Network monitoring).
