My box at home is connected to the net via a DSL router. The box has a 
192.168.xxx.xxx Ip, and therefore, I think you sketched the problem the 
right way. Is there a way to do this automatically via pf(1)? It would 
be weird to forward each connection, most of them DHCP obtained IPs, by 
hand. Sorry, I'm not very familiar with that stuff ...
