Bug: what Linuxers call "IP Masquerading" is called by the rest of
the world, including IP protocol standard documents, "IP Network
Address Translation" or NAT. Its supported as part of the "ipfilter"
package which is integrated with NetBSD-1.3.x. Read the manual
pages (ipftest(1), mkfilters(1), ipf(4),  ipl(4),  ipf(5),
ipfstat(8), ipmon(8), ipnat(8), ipfilter(4)) and example config
files (in /usr/share/examples/ipf) for more information.
