...or people using a dedicated firewalling/NAT-ing box. Which is (I
think) quite a common thing to do. For example, at one place where I
worked in the past, we had a few 'client' boxen (around 40), sitting on
the local lan, and one dedicated box NATed them out. No firewalling
needed on those 40 boxen.
And yes, I consider this experience representative of many users needs.
Maybe we don't all link laptops with PLIP, but if you also count those
who use a dedicated firewall, the number will increase quite much.
