The behaviour of -from is unintuitive. It just delivers any address / hostname
that the computer is connected to. (Well maybe the primary)
This doesn't serve in cases of vpn tunnels, where the destination route passes
trough the tunnel (routing table), but the connecting client delivers the public /
outside address to the server, so the server reconnects to a different address using
another route instead of the tunnel.
Therefore I propose:
leave the -from option to explicitly define an origin.
But change the default value of -from to reflect the origin according to the routing
table (and the respective device).
Have a look for a nasty example:
