OK, I understand about them building IPX packets which go to the "black box"
and get translated into IP packets magically. But do they allow you to
have listening sockets as well? Can a user still setup an ftpd on their
windows machine? Are there any filtering capabilities in these units?
Are there any real differences in the Internet Junction by Cicso and
Instant Internet by Bay Networks, etc?
