Humm, not really. In fact I'm planning to configure this new
gateway in this manner:
-+--+--+--+--+--[gateway B]------[gateway A]----------> Internet
| | | | | |
domain of A |
domain of B
At a first glance, B is in the subnet of A. In fact this is
because we're planning to replace A by B in a near future. So, I
only need B working as a gateway.

Is this the only thing that is necessary?
