ipmasq utilizes ipchains (ipfwadm for slink).

to see the commands it uses, try

	ipmasq -d

the -d means 'display what you WOULD do, don't actually do anything'

it bases its rules on what it finds in /etc/network/interfaces
(or the output of ifconfig -- you can see for yourself by
looking at "pager `which ipmasq`")

create jobs with it. You'd throw it in the bushes or
something.  But the government will spend it, thereby
creating jobs.      -- Dave Barry
