just tested some more.. and i assume this fwd business is for just
pushing packets around on the same host..

i snuck in rule 400 as a test..

00400 fwd,3128 tcp from any to any dst-port 80
00500 fwd tcp from any to any dst-port 80

1.1 is what i'm typing in my browser.. originally i was hoping this
would be forwarded to 1.2.. but was getting no love..

however when i fwd to the same host as i type in the browser, the fwd
works.. i take it this is it's use??

so how do I do want I want to do??
