Yes, I agree that bridging was the wrong word to use, but I had already submitted the tip when I realised the confusion that may cause. I was at a loss of words as to what I should call the thing and sadly I forgot that bridge has a slightly different meaning.

I assume that if we could figure out a way to do port mapping that you could use it to see in.
