It does non-routable address to routable address translation, and works
VERY nicely. It's also a full feature Firewall system. As long as you
have a small network and don't make money with it, it's also FREE! (See
license agreement for more information).
It even supports verbose/silent messaging through a sysctl (turn on/off
lots of messages).
These are good folks, trying to put a good product on the street. I'm
VERY impressed so far; I wouldn't leave homenet without it.
