Can I have ipnat map one of my ethernet cards to another? I want to
connect my NetBSD machine to a cable modem. So, it's connected out a
10baseT ethernet card using DHCP to acquire an IP address. Then I want to
connect that machine to another using a direct link with ethernet cards.
What I want to do is transfer all data coming out of the direct link to the
cable modem connection. I believe the term is IP masquerading.
I found ipnat. However, it appears I have to name two IP addresses. Which
I can't because one of them changes from day to day. I suppose I could
write a script to grab it everytime I boot, but what a royal pain!

I think you'll need to rewrite your ipf file when you get your dhcp
I'd mail to email@example.com and ask this -- others have done
this I'm certain.
