This is not possible, excecpt by MSDFS. In theory, it might be possible
for one host to hijack a connection to another, but it would need to
have full vuid/tid/fd tables before it would even start to look like it
worked. The closest I can come is the suggestion (mad earlier) that
you could have one server 'proxy' for another, or a 'frontend' server
proxying for a number of backends. (I understand some cluster
arrangements do this).
