IPNAT(8)							     IPNAT(8)



NAME
  ipnat	- user interface to the	NAT subsystem

SYNOPSIS
  ipnat	[ -lnrsvCF ] -f	<&lt;filename>&gt;

DESCRIPTION

  ipnat	opens the filename given (treating "-" as stdin) and parses the	file
  for a	set of rules which are to be added or removed from the IP NAT.

  Each rule processed by ipnat is added	to the kernels internal	lists if
  there	are no parsing problems.  Rules	are added to the end of	the internal
  lists, matching the order in which they appear when given to ipnat.

OPTIONS

  -C   delete all entries in the current NAT rule listing (NAT rules)

  -F   delete all active entries in the	current	NAT translation	table
       (currently active NAT mappings)

  -l   Show the	list of	current	NAT table entry	mappings.

  -n   This flag (no-change) prevents ipf from actually	making any ioctl
       calls or	doing anything which would alter the currently running ker-
       nel.

  -s   Retrieve	and display NAT	statistics

  -r   Remove matching NAT rules rather	than add them to the internal lists

  -v   Turn verbose mode on.  Displays information relating to rule process-
       ing and active rules/table entries.
