Description  A student in my class made this type of NAT configuration

# ipnat -FC -f - << EOF
> map hme0 -> 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.
