Yes, I believe it's a 50.
No, I can't use the NAT functionality.

This box is owned the ISP, and since the setup is intended to be a one-machine 
setup, they are not likely to let me play with it to enable NAT.

The real reason for this message was not for us to find a way to cheat the ISP, 
but rather because we were curious if it was possible to set all the machines 
up on one strand of ether and have the BSD box do NAT before forwarding on to 
the Ascend.

Is that a Pipe 50/75?  If so the new firmware 5.0 is supposed to do NAT.

Good luck,
