Dear All,

again I sent privately what should have been on the list. Now, this does not add much to Toke's response, but since Georgios referenced it it seems doubly awkward to keep it off-list...

Best Regards

Nat will not work as it needs access to data structures only available in the host that actually performs the masquerading. I believe almost everything else should work.... Since you are behind the NAT router, even the dual-xxxhost options should just work...
