i am just reading NAT and ipnatctl howto , and i dont quite understand the
if i nat a private network onto a public class C , do i need to do both
straight and reverse nat or will the reverse one be doen automatically.
Before with alekseis code you had to do both.
Like when you send out a packet with the syn bit set it gets nated and sent
out, and when it comes back in ( from teh outside server obviously with no
syn bit set) it gets denatted and forwarded.
Now i have the impression that i may not have to do the second rule since it
will automagically happen..
am i right or wrong ?
and what is the difference between: source and destination ( is this how to
match a packet )
then binding will be : what to do to it
and mapping type name would be what ?
Please correct/add to what i am saying
PS rusty i have an smp box here if you want i can test stuff , just tell me
--source/-s address/mask Source address
--destination/-d address/mask Destination address
Type of binding
--to/-t [address/mask | address-address]
IP address range to map to
--mapping-type/-m <name> What to do with matches.
