Thanks. After searching all over the place for days I finally found last
night that I had a mini howto on my own machine!!! There are so many
formats for help on Linux (man, info, howto, install guides, internet,
dejanews etc, etc.) that some one like me, who is a beginner ,can fail to
find what is under my nose!!
Anyway, with your advice and my new found howto on masquerading I am sure
that I will sort it tonight.
