Hmm, set up tproxy and ijb last night and was well impressed. What I'd like
to know is, does anybody know of some good _transparent_ proxies for FTP,
telnet etc? An ftp proxy that can do temporary IPchains rules and can
handle active mode would be particularly neat..
On a related note, where does portmapper derive the ports it assigns to
things like nfsd? I suppose I could use cron and the output of rpcinfo to
maintain a chain, put that feels... dirty.
