"Me too", except I never waited for it to time out. I thought it was
ipnat, because I can't use RealPlayer3 on the old Mac (running Mac OS),
either, and that used to work when the Mac had the modem.

My ipnat.conf looks like this:

root@fiona-> ipnat -l

I've also tried using "rdr" to port 7070. NetBSD-1.5_ALPHA2 and
NetBSD-1.4.3, both, no luck. I've yet to update since IPfilter 3.4.9
went into 1.5, though, so maybe that would work better.
