Forwarding should not be necessary for connecting on the matching IP
address. If ethA has IP-A and is connected to net-A and ethB has IP-B
and is connected to net-B, then forwarding is not necessary to connect
to IP-A from net-A nor to IP-B from net-B

Forwarding would  be necessary to connect to IP-A from net-B or IP-B
from net-A without taking a round trip, but it also requires that the
router on the networks knows about it.

If this is true, then this is the issue and forwarding is irrelevant.
