I have a 2.4.14 machine running as a firewall and NAT machine for my ADSL 
link.  The firewall function seems to be working (I get lots of syslog 
messages about people's port-scanning attempts being dropped).  The NAT works 
fine too.

The only problem I have with the machine is that named sends out requests 
with a source port of 1 not the 53 that I request.  Any suggestions regarding 
this BIND problem would be appreciated.
