PF concerns again
I would like to use DragonflyBSD as a filtering bridge. Bridging works
all right, so does PF - except for active FTP. I know I could use
ftp-proxy (from within inetd), but ftp-proxy is not an elegant solution,
and rdr rules are ignored on bridges as far as I know. The solution
would be ftpsesame ( http://www.sentia.org/projects/ftpsesame/ ), which
is in pkgsrc-wip, but that does not compile, and on the pkgsrc-review
list my mails regarding this are (almost) repetitively ignored. Anyway,
this is not a place to complain.
1) The update process to OpenBSD 3.9's PF has started (according to
Simon). Will this also invoke adding the revamped ftp-proxy to the base
2) How about adding ftpsesame to the base system? It is BSD-licensed,
and compiles in a few secs. If so, it should also have a rc script, and
in rc.conf it could have variables like: ftpsesame="YES"
ftpsesame_options="-i ed0" (this is also relevant if it just gets fixed
Thanks for the answers, and sorry for bothering again, but I think these
subject are important from the usability point of view.
