Thanks. I am familiar with remote subnets but they tend to use a proxy.
I am not using a proxy but relying on having an interface on the same
broadcast domain but not the same subnet. I can't see how a reasonable
client could differentiate this from a proxy, but as we all know not
all clients do reasonable things!
