My understanding is for sockets, connect sets the destination IP address, and bind sets the return IP address.

What would happen if I created two sockets, socka and sockb, and did:
socka.connect(10.1.1.2);
socka.bind(99.0.0.1);
sockb.connect(99.0.0.1);
If I now send some data to sockb, will the data go to socka and then will socka forward that data to IP address 10.1.1.2?
