comment lighttpd on win32 - symlink equivalent?
didn't know about mklink... thank you! If you post that separately I'll mark answered and vote up ;-)

No, it's a single ISP link with multiple IP addresses on the same Ethernet, as stated in my original post. In my example, 172.16.0.1 is a single static IP, and 172.16.1.x is five additional static IPs, but they ALL come in off the same Ethernet cable. To test, I put a switch between the Linux router and the modem and setup a second box with a static, and it worked. This is another idea I had, but it still doesn't solve the problem of routing 192.168.1.x FROM those five IPs into the LAN. This won't work as those boxes wouldn't be using my router as their gateway.

A key point would be that I need to figure out how to get packets coming in from the router and destined for the second block of IPs to pass up into iptables. Once they're in there, I could do whatever routing, redirecting or mangling necessary to get them to and from where I want. Problem is Linux only passes packets it "expects" to see through iptables. In other words it won't process packets not destined for addresses it itself knows about. Adding the IPs to Linux AND to the servers would create some confusion on the LAN with respects to ARP and such...

Really don't want to go with commercial solutions.. This is for a very small home-based business as well as some personal cloud stuff. I feel like there should be some way to accomplish this with Linux's powerful networking stack; just looking for some direction.
