When I started the system today, I found that again it had no
connectivity. I did some checks and then found that 'natd' was not
running. But this is not happening that frequently, and seems to only
have started after the last system update. Could be some sort of race
condition. Is there a logfile that natd writes to, so that I may
investigate the reason why it is exiting?
