I'm wondering what you mean there - I've been doing a lot with RealVideo and
other technologies through natd on FreeBSD since about 2.2.7 (currently 3.0)
on my own firewall. I've even used inbound redirection to serve Real content
from my internal NT server through the firewall to the outside world. Mind
you, I didn't put much time into testing.

I haven't been able to fully get ICQ working, however, I believe because
it's trying to make direct connections between remote hosts and hosts inside
my firewall. Any know if I can just open up some inbound ports to my
internal host? I haven't had a chance to trace it yet to figure things
out... That would cause problems if you had multiple internal hosts running
messaging software like ICQ.

Too much admin to do, too little time 8^)
