It was thus said that the Great Chuck McManis once stated:

  But is defined as a private network and won't be routed on the
Internet. The machines that are in the network will have their
gateway set to the machine with two NICs. Then he'll have to run software
to NAT (Network Address Translation) his internal private addresses to one
of the public addresses. I know it's possible under Linux or FreeBSD but I
don't know about NT.

        he wants to learn how to use routed)
