Changing the source IP/port tuple will not change the route to be used 
through which the stream will be sent. Normally, only the destination 

If you have to use a specific interface to send your stream, you must 
have a route to the destination in your kernel that goes through said 

As an example, if the destination is, and your own network 
driver defines an interface called if0, you would do something like:
# route add -host dev if0
