Hi guys,

Summer of Code is finished so i released my work about libalias,
and i would appreciate if anyone try it out and report.

There's a tarball here:

or if you prefer perforce:

there's a readme inside that explains pretty much everything you need to know.

For more information about the project:

or to summarize the changes respect to plain libalias:

-run as kld in 4.x, 5.x and 6.x (actually it was already working in 6.x)

-added log support to libalias kld

-integrated with ipfw (nat action added to ipfw)

-moved from a monolithic deisgn to a modular one
 -every protocol supported (except for tcp, udp, ip and icmp) is now
  a module loadable at run time
 -module works both when libalias run as kld or user land lib

-something else that i don't remember now...

Feel free to report about bugs or design issue,
