Re: PCAnywhere and IPCHAINS

Hello nate,
    'Coz ipchains always displays that message, so I've commented the REDIRECT
So for my objective, the important parts are the ipchains, ipmasqadm portfw and
route table, right?
For my case, do I need any settings like CONFIG_IP_TRANSPARENT_PROXY=y?
And will ipchains' MASQ rule affect this? I got something like the following in
my rules:
ipchains -A forward -s $INTERNAL_NET -j MASQ
ipchains -A forward -i $INTERNAL_INTERFACE -j MASQ
    If it works, what would I see in the syslog for ipchains? Would I see
something like the followings?
external_interface PCAClientExternalIP (unprivportA) -> FWExternalIP (5632)
internal_interface PCAClientExternalIP (unprivportA) -> PCAHostInternalIP (5632)
