This is true, although by judicious use of bridging you can get around
this.  For example, I can plug my Zaurus into my Windows XP box (which
sits behind a Linux firewall/gateway/router) and have it transparently
appear on the network, even though it's a internal network.

The Zaurus is then just configured to use the Linux machine as a gateway
directly and doesn't have to know about the fact that the XP box is
actually bridging packets back and forth.
