All of the addresses I'm dealing with are in public space eg:

SMTP(a.b.x.x)  <-|-> Linux(a.b.x.x) <--> XP(x.x.x.x)
MySQL(a.b.x.x) <-|
Samba(a.b.x.x) <-|

Would you do this with tap and create the "direct host route" with

Does the tap(or tun) on the linux box use an address in the a.b.x.x

They want the XP laptops to have access to these services when not on
site. The SMTP server is the only one I don't have direct control of. Do
you think this is the right approach?
