why curious? I also have a /27 subnet for my LAN and all my Servers
within the LAN. The public hotspot is on an OPT and also my clients
which are not serving for anyone outside are on another OPT. So I have
3 Subnets, one public without NAT or PAT (NAPT), two with NAT and
excessive use of firewall rules. Even if a MS Windows Client connects
to my public LAN, there's only a small chance to get infected with a
worm or virus, due to my firewall rules. Also SMB conns are not
possible from the outside to my LAN clients... :) I'm very happy with
