Do you mean "ipfwadm -M"? IP Masquerading?

Try program tcpdump. Use "tcpdump host a.b.c.d" on Linux and boot your
Windows NT; a.b.c.d should be their IP address. You will see what packets
are Windows NT trying to send.

Sorry, this is a czech mailing list, and in Czech republic ISDN costs too
much money to be used, so I don't think anybody here will help you with
configuration of ISDN.

Maybe something as "ipfwadm -Ii deny ..." will help you; but now you
should use tcpdump and than you can plan anything else.

Maybe. Ask support na microsoft.com. ;-)
