System: NetBSD 1.6.2_RC3 NetBSD 1.6.2_RC3 (Kefren) #7: Tue Dec 2 18:11:51 EET 2003 i386

	# cat /etc/ipnat.conf
	rdr bge0 port 80 -> port 3128
	# ipnat -l | grep RDR | wc -l

	this rule is working only when there are less than 256 redirections. When this number of connections
	is greater than 255 the redirection is not made. Quite disturbing in case of a transparent proxy.
