Dynamic allocation of IP addresses to workstations doesn't have much to do
with NAT -- try hunting for information on dhcp or bootp. There are two
DHCP servers in the ports tree (net/isc-dhcp2 and net/wide-dhcp).

If I'm barking up the wrong tree, and you're actually talking about static
NAT maps, then see natd(8).

Try describing exactly what you're trying to achieve, rather than guessing
at components that might provide solutions -- then post the question to
the -questions list. There are lots of helpful people there that will give
you ideas.

Oh -- also, check out Dan's list of NAT articles at
