For some values of "work". The NAT on my current unit (which was only a
temporary replacement while my previous unit was out under warranty) is
borked, and won't let me connect to my own mailserver within my network. The
unit that was sent back under warranty has been credited rather than
replaced, so I'm stuck with what was supposed to be a temporary solution.

Of course, the current unit will go on Ebay, preventing someone else from
having to purchase another (new) unit.
