I didn't think IPFilters was working on -cobalt at one time?  I'll  
look again.

Anyway I want to implement sshd tunnelling, not just port  
forwarding-- I have port forwarding working well already just fine  
(using an separate router, I don't have the BSD box exposed at this  

I can followup elsewhere once I know this should work, but wanted to  
make sure this really would work on -cobalt port.  I'm used to - 
cobalt being a little behind; this should just be an sshd thing  
(which would be well supported) but want to check with those familiar  
with my platform before moving out of the niche.

It seems that it should not be too bad though.
