I'll do my best. I currently have a DSL Modem connected to a NetBSD box via a 10Base-T connection to a 3C509
Ethernet Adapter, /dev/ep0. I have a 3C590 10/100 Ethernet Adapter, /dev/ep1, connected to an 8-port Ethernet
Switch. I also have a Windows Client (proposed VPN Client) connected to the same Ethernet Switch via a 100Base-T

I have configured the NetBSD box with IPF and IPNAT according to the Document "Basic NetBSD Networking" taken
