"I've run into a bit of a problem. I have an OpenBSD frankenrouter running pf and nat, and as yet not had many problems. I allow all protocols outbound and keep state. Now I've moved in with a bunch of other people, and certain udp based protocols (halflife/counterstrike) break. Are there gaming proxies in the nature of ftp--proxy that would work under inetd/nat that could fix this? I do NOT want to open up the relevant ports to all hosts on the public internet. I do not want to put a rdr rule in nat.conf every time the users change servers. I want this to be dynamic and something that can happen while I sleep (and they play until dawn). Of course, if it automagically helped UDP based protocols in general, that would be ideal, but I'll settle for getting my users games to work. "I don't game much, but does anyone have any suggestions on how to make games work with pf?
