Re: replication question...

Vesa Jääskeläinen wanted us to know:

You need to setup a tunnel.  One that I've used that works great is on
Sourceforge, called vtun.  Look it up.  You'll need two public IP's
somewhere (one for the inbound requests, one for the outbound tunnel)
and the tunnel is initiated from the NAT'd box so you don't need a
public IP at that location.
