Yes, the 10. private address of the java box sends packets to the address is his
alias on public side. The java box should never try to do this, in my mind (very
little of it left now:) java should not even know what it's public address is
unless Natd is not working properly and if that were the case I'd think to have
found something about such a problem during my day of searching the net. The
statement about the 'reflux' above was made by the java support person, and I
think he's saying that it is the client providing the IP address to the java box
in it's call for the report, and java box is too dumb (read config file problem
?) to know it should be asking itself.

The firewall won't send those packets on because its set to stop spoofing on the
inside interface. "add deny all from ${onet}:${omask} to any in via ${iif}"

I don't know much about either and Mr. Java support guy says it's my NAT on the
firewall. If anyone knows which file I should look in first I'd really
appreciate it.
