As long as I understood, ipfilter doesn't do such things originally.
As http://m0n0.ch/wall/docbook/faq-lannat.html says:
Reason. This is due to a limitation in ipfilter/ipnat (which are used in 
m0n0wall). Read the ipfilter FAQ for details. m0n0wall does not (and probably 
will not) include a "bounce" utility.

And "bounce" utilities that I was looking at support only TCP protocol.

iptables and ipfilter are two different piece of firewall/nat/ipfilter 
software, so if iptables for Linux can do something, it doesn't mean ipfilter 
can do the same thing
