As Myke wrote: I have to change the source address. Re-originate
is the word - thanks. :-) Port forwarding / NAT doesn't do that.

Background: Packets with external source addresses get routed over the
default route. And since our m0n0wall isn't the defaultrouter, that
leads to problems. We can either add hostroutes to all machines (yuck),
or change the source address of our SSH connections by using a relay.

rinetd is an alernative, yes. I totally forgot about that. But anyway,
rinetd isn't in the stock distribution, either.

That leads me back to my original question: is such a feature planned
in the foreseeable future?

Thanks
