Re: [vox-tech] ip_masq-quake.o

IIRC, ipchains and ipfw didn't handle "related" ip 
traffic. It was one of the most annoying features of 
that firewalling code. You had to load other modules so 
that related ip traffic could follow the same rules. 
With the masq modules you could define one set of rules 
for say ftp and then realted ip traf could be handled.

I remember having alot of trouble with FTP until I RTFM 
and loaded the right modules.
