Or making it so no one has to... ;)


  Yet another I-Wish-I-Had-A-Real-Net-Connection hack... this one to
that same domain with *one* POP3 mail account for the <entire> domain.

  This service provider is nice enough to provide us with *one* registered
IP address... *sigh*  So, not wanting to sacrifice internet access for
my users (ie. I didn't want to listen to the whines about not being able
to, ftp, telnet, or whatever), I played router/gateway/firewall
with one machine... effectively making it the proxy server for the
entire system; and that's all it can do...  Hey, it's slow, but it
actually works... I can have my IP network on one side and they all can
make it out to the internet and do whatver they want (although there are
probably a couple of "gotchas" I have yet to exploit).


              In cyberspace, no one can hear you scream...
