Presumably they're double-natting. I had to do that once for Y2K compliance for three large governmental networks that were all statically addressed in net-10 and wouldn't/couldn't renumber in time. In fact, there were _specific hosts_ which had the same IP address, and _had to talk to each other_. Gross. But it can be done.
Please explain how. I simply can't imagine my computer communicating with another one with exactly same ip address - the packet would never leave it. The only way I see to achieve this is to have dns resolver on the fly convert remote addresses from same network into some other network and then NAT from those other addresses. -- William Leibzon Elan Networks [email protected]
