Build 50@home & NAT
By user12625760 on Oct 13, 2006
Build 50 of nevada hit my home server today with little fuss thanks to live upgrade. So far no unpleasant surprises although I had to loose the zone for the web server as live upgrade in nevada unlike live upgrade in 10 can't handle zones yet. I will however still used zones as testing grounds.
The system has been live now for a few weeks, doing NAT, firewall, email (imaps and SMTP) via exim with spamassasin and clamd for antivirus, Samba providing widows server support, ntp, DNS and DHCP I have fallen someway behind in the documentation of it though.
Getting NAT (Network Address Translation) for any non geeks still here was a breeze. I simply followed the instruction on Ford's blog, substituting my network device (rtls0) in the right places and stopping before any of the zones stuff due to not needing it.
My /etc/ipf/ipnat.conf has ended up looking like this:
: pearson TS 15 $; cat /etc/ipf/ipnat.conf map rtls0 192.168.1.0/24 -> 0/32 proxy port ftp ftp/tcp map rtls0 192.168.1.0/24 -> 0/32 portmap tcp/udp auto map rtls0 192.168.1.0/24 -> 0/32 : pearson TS 16 $;
and smf starts it without fault.
