There are situations (for example a cluster implementation) where one has to proxy UDP packets to make the client node's BMCs accessible to the external world. There are many UDP proxy implementations available and it is trivial to write one on your own. I feel it is best to leave this job to NAT system that comes along with your kernel.
For example, under Linux kernel, you can use Netfilter DNAT (Destination Network Address Translation) and packet filtering rules to achieve this. If you are looking for an example script, let me know. -- Anand Babu Free as in Freedom <www.gnu.org> GPG: 875D 577F 4130 BB7C 7E00 459F 6B45 5939 62E1 5A31 _______________________________________________ Freeipmi-devel mailing list Freeipmiemail@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/freeipmi-devel
