Bug ID 6440630
Synopsis ipnat error message is uninformative and scary to users
State 1-Dispatched (Default State)
Commit to Fix
Submit Date 19-JUN-2006

Description A student in my class made this type of NAT configuration
# ipnat -FC -f - << EOF
> map hme0 184.108.40.206/32 -> 220.127.116.11/32 proxy port ftp ftp/ftp
0 entries flushed from NAT table
0 entries flushed from NAT list
1:ioctl(add/insert nat rule): No such file or directory
After nearly soiling ourselves from the error message, we realized
that this was a simple typo ( s/ftp\/ftp/ftp\/tcp ).
The diagnostic really should be improved.
