	Heya. Not to split hairs too much, and not as if I
ever tried this myself <g>, but it should be possible with
to create a PPTP/IPSec tunnel, or even a secure bridge, with 
both endpoints behind different firewalls. I've even heard 
about CIPE being used on two 2.4 Linux boxes like this.
	As long as the tunnel passes layer-2 data directly,
and the NetMeeting machines are told about this interface
as the default route....it should work. Ah, to be young
and have too much time on my hands again...:)
