Thought so, thank you.

I think I was not clear in how I asked the question.
This is the "route" command I am speaking of. And,
it "does" connect two different network together.
Note the "ADD" command in the example.

1) open a DOS prompt in Windows:
2) enter "route /?"
Manipulates network routing tables.
ROUTE [-f] [-p] [command [destination]
[MASK netmask] [gateway] [METRIC metric] [IF interface]
> route ADD MASK METRIC 3 IF 2
destination^ ^mask ^gateway metric^ ^

So, if someone on a different network is using the "route" command
to connect to your network, will they show up?

No problem. I try to break down questions into their simplest
elements. Sometimes is throws folks off.

And, this is the correct group. From:
Security Basics ? A high-volume list which permits people
to ask "stupid questions" without being derided as "n00bs".
I recommend this list to network security newbies, but
be sure to read Bugtraq and other lists as well.

Thank you for all the help on this and all my other questions.
