Cool, that's what I thought, but like you I was also unsuccessful. Let me
know if you get a chance to try again. In my particular situation it
would be a big benefit to be able to do this and I'm sure others as well.
With the recent stress put on hosting providers to save ip space, etc, be
able to use direct routing and nat with internal and routable address
space would be pretty cool to do for people who have the need to do other
things from the real servers, like cvs over ssh in my case.
