Thanks for the info John.

The plan was to have a seperate connection for only 2 machines so I could use
VNC between them to not hog the main internet network.
By endpoint I meant that the end of the second network would be my main
machine, so there really needs to be no routing. It looks like I setup a
second nic in my main machine and point my remote machine at it.

Thanks, Mike
