It should work. I have just finished a network implementation fo my client
who uses Class A address with Class C subnet for thier WAN and LAN. I uses
the same FW_HIDE option and it works fine but you may face a problem ehn
trying to ping. This is due to the bug in FW-1 Version 2.0 which the FW_HIDE
feature only allows services with port numbers. So ICMP doesn't use any
ports. Hope this helps ....
