I've not done it with the GRF but I have done this with BSD/OS and
gated, and it worked OK. [still is working AFAIK :-)]
8 baynard-mega-int-e3.bt.net (22.214.171.124) 40.246 ms 19.178 ms 10.848 ms
9 galaxians.router.easynet.net (126.96.36.199) 23.402 ms 45.58 ms 45.057 ms
When we did this is just worked. Although I'm not sure what BTnet did [if
anything] to make the intermediate hop work ok.
