OK, Darren, I give up :-) How does IPFilter's FTP Proxy actually
work? My specific requirement is to have host 172.24.16.4 act as
both FTP server and FTP client, I can get FTP service to work by
providing NAT as
map ne0 184.108.40.206/32 port 21 -> 172.24.16.4/32 port 21 ...
plus some, but I can't quite get a handle, from the examples in
/usr/share/examples/ipf, on how to make FTP Proxy work. NAT
makes FTP passive mode impractical, while active mode seems to
require some serious gymnastics I can't quite bend my mind around.
Any help welcome. The machine I'm trying all this on runs NetBSD
1.3.2 on i386.
