Are you saying I can run NATD as a stand-a-lone function? IE: not enabling IPFW and using the 'divert natd' rule

The reason you can't find a NAT program in the ports collection is because such a program exists in the base system. natd(8) is a front-end to the libalias(3) library, which implements generic packet aliasing and masqerading functions (aka NAT). > I was wondering if the NAT logic code from user ppp could be copied > and made into stand-a-lone NAT program.

Thanks Both ppp(8) and natd(8) use the libalias(3) library for NAT functionality. -- Matt Emmerton _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
