Yeah, use host headers all the time, but I'm upset that the ZyXel does not
work as per instructions nor as advertised. They claim that it can work in
multi-NAT, but after posting to different forums, it seems that no one has
yet actually gotten Multi-NAT to work!
Suggestions to use "SUA-Only" or turn NAT off are not helping because it
misses the point entirely.
I've asked for a BIN configuration file from others, but, oddly, the
"experts" have not stepped up to the plate to supply a config file of a unit
that works in "Full Feature" mode. I assume that it is because the 10ii
does not work in Multi-NAT, period!
