But the WhitePine server will. And the older WP 2.X reflectors for that
matter. I don't know about Brian's Enhanced Reflector.... Brian?

I still don't think it would work tho, but I've never tried it either...
For Windows, possibly if you had a separate TCP stack for each IP
address... IE: one is a LAN connection, the other a Modem (or something
like that)... I haven't worked with the Linux client yet, so I'm not sure
how that works.
It certainly would be an interesting test!
