Dual Ethernet ports on G5, why?

Hi,

on the newest G5 modells you can find Dual 10/100/1000BASE-T (Gigabit) Ethernet ports. Does anyone know if these could be used as a router to share Internet connection with another computer?

I guess these dual ports would be useful if you have, say an ethernet controller (ie. Control24 or DCommand..) which need to be connected with DHCP, while your LAN connection needs to have fixed IP that is not in the same "class" as the Controllers..

yea OSX has great internet sharing.
you can even share through firewire.

the dual gigabit ethernet is handy in more ways than you realize.
There are Gigabit Ethernet external hard drive enclsoures now available at 2.5x the bandwidth of Firewire, and 25% more bandwidth than Firewire800.

and yea the Waves Waveshell excelles with Gigabit ethernet also.
Logic Nodes, etc.

lots of uses.....

Plus there's a nifty feature called XGrid that allows you to cluster OS X systems together to form one large operating computer.
