That is true. You'd need at least one server at each subnet. But once I did a ugly hack to make it working: I bimapped broadcast addresses along the subnets. As far as I can remember this worked, but it was just for fun, I never used it. Also prividing a WINS at SAMBA and using that on the ppp link was usefull but that was long ago (WinNT WinCE and Samba 1) -Harry > > Thanks. > > _________________________________________________________________ > ninemsn Premium transforms your e-mail with colours, photos and animated > text.
