Yea I've made that mistake a couple of times re: ethx I'm currently looking in to the ipw2200-ap drivers, these might solve my problem, cause it seems like you can only bridge a wifi card that can act like a AP. hopefull I come up with a solution. As for what the VMs are, basically: 1. Debian dev server (needs to mount NFS and other bits and peices so DNAT would be a nightmare :( 2. A winbloze test box, unfortunately still need to test that IE can read the sites. Will keep the list posted... -- Thank you, Clifford W.
