        1) Check the licensing; I believe providing a commercial
        service using this software is forbidden (I think it is
        largely there to demonstrate TIS' capabilities);

        2) I don't believe that it supports transparent proxying -
        transparent proxying of ftp requires cooperation from the
        operating system kernel, as the destination host is not
        encoded into the user level part of the data stream.
