I have setup some ipfilter rules along with some NAT mappings and they appear
to work fine. However I am still a little unclear, after reading the
documentation and reviewing the ASCII diagram at
http://coombs.anu.edu.au/~avalon/ipfil-flow.html, as to when exactly the
address translation occurs.
For instance if my internal network is: 192.168.200.0/24 and my external IP
interface is 126.96.36.199 and I map 192.168.200.0/24 -> 188.8.131.52/32. If I make a
connection from 192.168.200.3 to 184.108.40.206 when does the translation occur,
right after input or just prior to output on the netbsd box?
