I've had a response from my ISP - they will not provide a second public IP
on the cablemodem.  I would have to get a second connection, cablemodem,
monthly fee, etc, which I can't afford.

So now I have fewer options.  Having both criggie.dyndns.org and
shell.canterbury.lug.org.nz resolve to is easy.  Can anything
do server NAT based on the hostname asked for?  I think not.

I could simply use a bunch of other ports for services, so that ssh is on
port 27 and so on.  However that probably won't look good for web pages.
Can m0n0wall and apache handle it by having a VirtualHost section then
redirecting to a different internal IP?

Likewise the MTA will need to know how to do similar funky things.

Am I pissing in the wind?
