In my case, I have a gateway that I call crystal, which has 2 NICs. 
Crystal forwards and NATs all of my 192.x.x.x. traffic to my 207.x.x.x 
NIC. Topaz, which also has 2 NICs, shares the DSL modem switch and is 
also connected to the 192.x.x.x network with a 2nd NIC. Topaz is not 
setup as a gateway and does not forward any 192. traffic to the 207. 
NIC. Both crystal and topaz have static IP addresses in the 207. block.

There isn't any problem with crystal talking to topaz on either the 207. 
network or the 192. network. The firewalls don't permit any in-bound 
traffic such as telnet, ftp, ssh, and etc over the 207. network.
