I have installed tircproxy in my firewall to be able to support dcc
sends and chats. I've followed the manual and I've done everything
as explained there, but I can't get it working. Ipnat's rdr rules
seem not to work.
I've added this rule at the top of ipnat.rules file:
rdr ed0 192.168.1.0/24 port 6667 -> 127.0.0.1 port 7666 tcp
where ed0 is my local nic and 192.168.1.0/24 is my local network.
Then, I run the tircproxy like this:
tircproxy -d9 -s 7666 -MLHR -i 192.168.1.1
also as explained in the manual.
No luck. The proxy does not get any connection. I use ipnat -l to see
active nats, but only MAP occurs.
I've also tried with 0/32, 0/0 in source ip of rdr rule, and the
only that seems to redirect connections is 0/0. But this has a problem,
when tircproxy gets the connection it says:
 No /var/run/user-192.168.1.3 file found, ident response will be wrong!
ioctl: Bad address
BTW, ipf is not blocking any ports in the local network, so it can't be
Thanks a lot.
