Haven't done it and can't think of a reason why I would "have" to. I do
understand why it would be a good idea to do so, but it shouldn't be
"necessary." The only issue is a subnet issue and the fact that for some
reason, machines on one subnet can't see machines on the other.

TCP/IP is the only protocol used.

This is essentially the same as poking around in Network Neighborhood
and/or trying to map a network resource on a known machine (even if the
machine and/or resource doesn't show up in NN); but yes, I did try it and
nothing was found.
