Re: 486 SX (masquerading DSL connection)
Interesting, so does this mean that the nic has two ip's assigned, ie
10.x.x.x and the ip assigned by pptp when the connection is made?
Sorry to seam so stupid about this, I run a LRP (5 static ip's) with 3 nic's
and am very happy with it, but am always looking to expand my knowledge ;-)
Sorry for reposting this to the list, but currently the reverse dns lookup
for my mail serve points to my ISP, and you have my ISP in your spam filter.
I'm on the phone with them now to get this fixed, gotta love verison, NOT!
