Ugh. You are wanting to redirect traffic that is not following the

Have you considered adding the 10.0.0.1 IP address to equipment with a
corresponding 10.0.0.x IP address to your system?
Or you may be able to look in to some sort of (socks?) proxy rapper that
will bind a 10.0.0.1 and allow you to redirect the traffic over to
