Subject: IPNAT Very Slow

I recently setup a computer to do IPNAT and replace and old Netopia router =
was using. I am finding it to be very slow. Much slower than the Netopia
router. I configured everything according to the IPNAT section in the NetBS=
Manual and recompiled the kernel with IPNAT support.
The machine is a PowerPC 604e @ 200MHz, 128MB RAM, 2GB SCSI HD, two Asant=E9
10/100t ethernet cards running NetBSD 1.5.1.
Here's what my IPNAT.conf looks like...
map de0 192.168.1.1/24 -> 0/32 proxy port ftp ftp/tcp
map de0 192.168.1.1/24 -> 0/32 portmap tcp/udp 40000:60000
map de0 192.168.1.1/24 -> 0/32
Both ethernet cards are connected to 100t switches. One internally and one
externally. I am only able to get 200-500kB/sec through the IPNAT machine. =
used to get about 900kB/sec through the Netopia router and it was only 10t.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
