I do not see this much different than a Gateway which converts (but is not a source of) the incoming packet to outgoing including the protocol (like ppp to Ethernet). If we take that analogy, the Hub could be viewed in that way. Is there any loss or complicacy in following that model ? Regards, Devendra Tripathi VidyaWeb, Inc
