I normally don't comment on stuff like this, but you are wrong Tom, I have
no idea where you read that they have to have the same host number but
it simply isn't true. I have a dozen or so dual-home machines, and none
of them have the same host number. It will work if they are the same, but
it isn't a requirement.
