Any particular reason you're using a stateful NAT? This makes it sound
as though you really want a stateless NAT, one which just rewrites
addresses, without doing many-to-one mapping or stateful firewalling -
in which case you're either using the wrong tool or you're configuring
it wrong, I don't know ipf well enough to know which.
