Doesn't matter how many ethernet cards there are, if it goes over the internet 
it has to have the remote gateways domain (domain.com) or IP address to get 
to the remote network.  That was what I was trying to explain but having a 
hard time of it.

I haven't used ipp before to get to a remote site, never had a need for it.  
So, I learned about something I hadn't known before.
