This is very doable. IP masquerade is easy to set up. Plenty of
FAQs on the net for this.
[Bill Horne] Well, let me throw some more into the pot ;-).
I have to work in Win95 for my employer most of the time, doing
Lotus Notes email. I'd like to have a "dial on demand" box
that will establish the right modem connection depending on the
requested IP address. In other words, if I request a
connection/session with a work IP address, I want the box to
dial my employer's access point, and if it's anything else I
want it to dial banet.net's POP in Canton. Of course, I'd have
to have a way to keep the requesting machine(s) from timing out
during dialing, but the big question is if the Linux box can
discriminate between PPP destinations based on the IP addresses.
Of course, it'll have to refuse connections from Internet users
when the server's modem is in use on the company service, vice
