 Subject:  m0n0wall image supporting TCP-Relays
 Date:  Sun, 27 Mar 2005 20:00:09 +0200
Hello list,

this is my first mail to the m0n0wall developers list - it's my first
mail to the whole m0n0wall community.

I found out about m0n0wall about 2 months ago when i needed a flexible
platform for possible projects. I work for a small company in IT-security
and we were not satisfied with the existing solutions in the low budget
segment.

So we bought a few WRAP boards and began evaluating m0n0wall...

It's a great piece of software and we are extremly satisfied with
it as a whole.

However, in a current project we needed TCP relaying features, which
m0n0wall currently can't provide.

I won't go into all the details. Please believe me, that we really needed
a TCP relay for remote SSH access to several machines.

Since i didn't find a solution in the n0n0wall mailing list archive, i
coded an image, based on the current 1.2b7. You may download it
from http://www.chilicon.de/~hafner/wrap-1.2b7nc.img

Before you ask: No, i won't do images for other platforms. Since this is
highly inofficial :-) i'd rather wait for a comment from Manuel.

I added three small programs:
/usr/local/bin/nc (netcat)
/usr/local/bin/miniinetd
/usr/local/bin/sockjoin (plus /usr/lib/libstdc++)

I assume, that you are familiar with netcat in this list.

The sources to miniidentd and sockjoin are available at
http://i1.dk/download/

Here's the usage info:
