I think that's what a proxy's for. See Catapult.

address to that of the valid IP address and when the response comes
back, Linux then passes the data back to the requesting local computer.
This process is not using any proxy's and I have full TCP/IP capability
from all local computers. I guess this may be what some call IP Spoofing.
This process is very usefull for we all heard that there may be a shortage
of IP Address. This will solve the problem or at least cut down on the
requests for additional Address from the NIC.
>My question is, can NT 3.51 or NT 4.0 be configured to do the same thing,
possibly using some kind of firewall software. Also can it be done without
using proxies. The IP Masquerading process is part of the Linux kernel and
I am hoping that a kernel modification can be done to NT if this process is
not already there. This can be a HUGE Plus for NT if Microsoft can do it.
