 Subject:  Reverse NAT on WAN if
 Date:  Fri, 17 Dec 2004 14:53:11 -0500
Found the message below, on this topic but no follow-ups. What we're
looking for is a map- or hide-type NAT externally, so that all
internet traffic bound for internal services gets mapped behind a
dummy address on the firewall's external segment. Traffic for servers
may come in through different firewalls, and we need a way to 
basically need to be able to ensure that it is routed back out through
the proper gateway.

My memory is that ipf/ipnat would do it like this 

ext0:firewall's external if, 
gw.ex.ter.nal:  firewall's external IP LAN segment

# ipnat.conf
# outbound nat rules for internal clients must come first
map ext0 -> gw.ex.ter.nal/32 portmap tcp/udp auto
map ext0 -> gw.ex.ter.nal/32

# inbound NAT rules to hide sources
map ext0 -> du.mm.m.y/32 portmap tcp auto

Possible? Probable? 

Many thanks,

D. Ubevidste
