I'm glad to hear this, because I have a DEC 3000 I plan on doing this
with. Question: Can I do this with just 1 ethernet card in the alpha? I
would like to assign 2 IP's to the same ethernet interface (le0), one from
my non-routable ip block the other from the cable connection. Then, run
ipnat between the 2 subnets on the same ethernet segment. I know
performance will be degraded, but i would just like to know if it's
technically possible. My other option would be to hunt down a turbochannel
NIC which I don't want to do if i don't have to.
Now a question about system versions. I see the mention of 1.3I and
1.3H. I just downloaded and installed 1.3.3-stable. Is this newer then
the others listed?
Trust the computer industry to shorten "Year 2000" to Y2K.
It was this kind of thinking that caused the problem in the first place.
