Re: can't ftp through IP Masq

I used 2.2.17pre6, and it handled compiling the modules for
CONFIG_IP_MASQUERADE_MOD. Also, it sounds like there have been some
security patches and things, so it is recommended to at least use 2.2.16 or
newer. IP Masq howto I read (URL was in a previous message), strongly
suggested 2.2.16 or newer as well.
