Deciding whether connection is NATed or not.
Thu, 6 Dec 2001 13:09:47 -0800
I seem to recall that 2.2 masquerading used certain high ports set aside
for source port of masqueraded connections. This was to help tell the
masq'd ones from one originating from the masq'ing box. No technique
like this is used for 2.4 kernels/iptables?
BTW, I could be wrong on the old behavior, I haven't looked at the
source I just remember reading that somewhere.
