true, i agree
and i do like this solution better, but that solution wont allow me to expand
let me explain what i mean by that

let's take for example i'm running more then one jail... while i can
bind all of them to same public IP address i'm going have to deal with
running for example same sshd on different ports, yet before i'd just
use rdr rule to route it appropriately. i guess its not really a big
deal but still

while we found very nice work around i still somehow would like to
know what happened, why ipnat stop working all the sudden..

i'd like to say thank you to you and anyone else who was involved in
this discussion
