Today is the first time I've seen this; and I reproduced it three times in
a row, sitting at a Windows 98 Second Edition client behind a NetBSD NAT.

Here's what I did:

Using CuteFTP 4.2 beta on the Windows box, I FTP'd through the NAT to a
friend's Windows box down the road, IP address When I
connect to it from the NAT itself, I get the following response:

blackhole:~$ ftp
Connected to
220-Wolfpac Industries FTP service
    WarFTPd 1.70.b01.04 (Aug 18 1998) Ready
    (C)opyright 1996 - 1998 by Jarle (jgaa) Aase - all rights reserved.

However, whenever I connect to it through the NAT with CuteFTP, the NAT
locks. I haven't tested with any other clients; I don't enjoy pressing the
reset button every few minutes.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
