The masquerading dialin unit will have the dynamic address assigned to it.
All the masqeraded units will have fixed inhouse addresses but will not be
normally accessible from the net. From outside they appear to have the
same address as the dialin unit . If an outside unit initiates a connect to a
masqueraded machine, it goes to the dialin unit instead. Therefore, the
outside unit would not be able to directly access the masqueraded unit by
IP addr alone.
