This did indeed clear things up a bit.

The top suggestions were (in order received):

1) inventive NAT translations between offices.
        Note a solution for us as we need to be able to do some of the nasty
        Microsoft stuff that imbeds the IP in the data-stream.

2) QIP Enterprise Management software from Lucent

3) Checkpoint Meta-IP

4) IP AddressWorks from Process Software

We are now looking into (2) and (4).

Thanx to all who responded.
