thanks jeff! using a second ip address worked like a charm.

i couldn't think of any ip addresses the were open in the 10.0.0.x range
so instead i pulled a number out of my butt which happened to be to my suprise this worked out fine. so now i have a different
question. can i use any number from 0 to 255 in place of the x in
10.x.x.x ?

for example...

would 10.0->255.0->255.0->255 work just fine (except for
right?)? when would i need to change the subnet mask, if ever?
