Re: Company Firewall's IP Address

The packets do not have to go directly to the source IP.  They have to
get to something that can get them to something... that can get to the
source IP.  Extrapolate proxies.

Unless I am missing something in the question, no matter what you do,
what/whoever you connect to through a firewall will always know the IP
