Dont want to sound rude here or anything but, My reply has nothing
to the Idea of connecting the two isolated, I did say it would
work if you put mactcp on the machines, in fact I dont think
would even need the fastpath box at all. If there was any
problems with not sending the Ip you could get a easy cheap
software solution, call MacIPGateway from Apple that sells for
if I remember right 99 dollars. This allows you great control
over a Ip networking scheme from what I have read about it.
