Thanks Simon. I agree, it can become mind-numbing! I sae the
--bridge-interface option in the man-pages and did read up on it. I had
it in the back of my mind that it may be useful but I equated it with an
earlier attempt to handle alias interfaces before dnsmasq started using
the dhcp-range <-> interface IP correlation.
I'm in the middle of severely re-organising the PC right now so I won't
get chance to test it until later in the week.
I'll let you know how I get on.
