That's just my point.
Despite many people telling me the one-to-many has some magic
way of extracting the data lost in the many to one mapping.
Yes, I've had people tell me no information is lost is the
mufti-hosts sharing one IP address. Just having NAT doesn't
work that magic. This is about incoming, not outgoing, plugs.
Thanks, Brend, for restoring my confidence that someone
out there knows what I was talking about.
