Wow. This opened some doors for me! But now, I get to flood with newbie
questions. =)

First of all, I have a 486-33dx4 acting as my masq-firewall. Its at Kernel
2.0.36, has a ppp0 properly set up and masquerades to a small network of
192.168.2.* addressed computers.  The firewall rules are below.
	ipfwadm -F -p deny
	ipfwadm -F -a m -S192.168.2.0/24 -D
	ipfwadm -I -p accept
	# the following line blocks incoming telnets since I use ssh to
	ipfwadm -I -a r -DXXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/32 23 # address removed to protect
the ignorant (me).

I compiled in port forwarding support and added the following lines to my
setup which allowed quicktime streaming to work for my Wife's machine:
	ipportfw -A -tXXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/554 -R
	# and a WHOLE BUNCH of udp routing lines.

Now, what I want to do, but haven't been able to get working is a forwarding
scheme for CVS. I want to have my gateway XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX box redirect its
port 6060 to my workstations ( cvspserver port (2401).

To this affect I entered the following lines:
	ipportfw -A -tXXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/6060 -R
	ipportfw -A -uXXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/6060 -R

Before I was doing portforwarding on 6060 when I telnet to that port on my
box I get the message "telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection
refused".  AFTER I add port forwarding on 6060 I get "telnet: Unable to
connect to remote host: Connection timed out".

The transactions are starting, they just aren't finishing.  My pet theory is
that this port forwarding thing isn't dealing with masquerading of the
returned packets, but like I said, I'm pretty clueless with this.

Any help appreciated!
