I assume that's what plug-gw does. Sorry, I haven't tried it before, as I
run an ISP setup, not a firewall setup. Personally, (as somebody who's
just started tinkering with socket() and freinds) I'd try to write a
program that basicly finds out where the packets are going, and connects
to that server, then literally acts as a simple transparent proxy between
the connections.

But, then again, that's basicly what IP masquerading does, except only for
services that I run the daemon on, and it won't work for ftp, irc, ping...
