Thanks for your comment and explanation of pf in the handbook. I also
bought your book some years ago and found it to be very useful.
However, I still have problems with ftp-proxy. From the handbook
example I understand that it is _NOT_ possible to set it up on a client
with only an external interface, though I'm not certain of this.
My system is very simple:
Host <--> Linksys Router <--> Modem <--> Internet
Is it possible to to set up pf on the host as an ftp client without
opening up all the ports above 1024? If so how?
With thanks __o
