Ok, thanks for confirming this.  Also thanks to all those who replied.  I 
have 
one more question.

I have the following setup as stated before in my last message

Linux A--------NAT/Firewall---| Internet |-----------Linux B

Linux A has an internal IP address of 192.168.1.1.  The NAT/Firewall is set 
up 
so that all packets going to a particular IP (lets say 4.5.6.7) gets NATed to 
Linux A.  So based on what everyone is telling me, I should set Linux 
B's "peer" setting as 4.5.6.7:999?  If that is the case what should be Linux 
A's "me" setting (192.168.1.1 or 4.5.6.7 or 0.0.0.0)?

Thanks
Amith
