Just wondering...

..I've had to play with bridging recently because I'm playing with
protocols that have IP's embedded in them, so I can't use NAT - would it
be possible (though probably somewhat more complicated) to bridge the
two ethernet interfaces together and NAT the third interface to an
overloaded IP A?

That way you get around needing to NAT the servers (which in my case I
couldn't do anyway).
