Hi Vesa,

Thanks for your tip

However after I upgraded my RH5.1 to 2.1.125 now my transparent proxy
doesn't work anymore. No matter what I try to enable in the kernel, ipfwadm
doesn't work anymore. Says this:

# ipfwadm -I -a accept -W lo
ipfwadm: setsockopt failed: Protocol not available

Anybody any idea what I forgot to do ?
