Homechoice: General Questions

I've heard HomeChoice uses NAT (Network Address Translation), what's that?

NAT is used to connect private networks to the Internet without having to allocate each user on the their own Internet identity, known as an IP address. It also may mean that to the Internet at large, the private network is just one entity and Internet users cannot differentiate between each PC on the network. As a result, it is not possible for PC's on the private network (HC's network in this case) to receive incoming connections from the Internet without support from the NAT router. See:
