This is my very point. These 'doze PCs can all have private IPs, be they
class A, B, or C and the server can have also have an address in that
network, and all the 'doze PCs will still be able to see the server. Anyway,
what the hell are 'doze PCs doing with static addresses - someone's working
too hard - haven't they heard of DHCP ?
