One of my web-servers needed to go behind a bit of a firewall mostly for
political and financial reasons that I won't get into... So I built a 
NAT box out of NetBSD-1.3I and put the webserver plus console server 
and database server behind it... I then redirected all port 80 connections
from the outside to the webserver on the inside and it's been running 
for about a week now with no problems... It's doing about 200,000 hits
per day and I expect this to increase...

On the NAT box I see:

	foo# ipnat -s
	mapped  in      11115095        out     14584506
	added   781757  expired 773785
	inuse   7375
	rules   5

mmmmm, NetBSD!
