On 10 Jul 99, Pedro Brandao <pbrandao.spam at> had questions 
about Sharing in another network:  

> I'm trying to share a machine that's on the other side of a gateway.

Which ports are you forwarding?

What happens when you try this:

   net use * \\linBox\userShare

Does it resolve, or timeout?

Can you explain what you mean here?

Thanks, Steve
